More Inspiration and New friends


I would like to share with you a little 5" x 5" catalog I picked up while I was in France. Its for the company Djeco and it manufactures some amazing toys. It is the most well designed catalog I've seen in a long time!

It combines beautiful illustrations by Gwen Keraval with photos of their products. Imagine all the work involved! Here are some spreads:

And last but not least- A cluck cluck to Edrian Thomidis- who were in NYC and we got to meet and chat about illustration and design. Thank you for the lovely conversation! It was a pleasure to meet you and your husband!

Sorry it's been so long since I dropped by! You've been so busy and I am so envious of your trip to France. It's my favourite country to visit! Djeco are also my favourite French company and their full catalogue contains some of the best product design I have seen! Loved the Halloween stickers too!

This catalog is fantatic! What great inspiration! You are too kind for mentioning our meeting. I'm still unpacking and also jumping into thanksgiving cooking, so I won't get to post anything about my NY trip until next week. I had a lovely time. Thank you for meeting with me. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Awesome finds. Every time one of my friends brings me back a book from Europe I'm always amazed at how utterly cool it is. They seem more advanced that us... north americans! hee hee. Or maybe I just like my friends finds?
