Studio Bites: No. 9
Charming

Each week we ask our team to select something they’ve seen or read that is inspiring, interesting, or just plain intriguing. At our creative breakfast we meet over coffee and croissants to share and discuss what everyone brought to the table.

 

Tl;dr

Books can be full of wonderful imagery and landscapes. In the case of Guy Laramee’s amazing ‘Desert of Unknowing‘, quite literally.

 

 

Nice pair

Sometimes thing are obviously meant to be together, and other times it takes a skilful eye to make the match. Mark Sander’s ‘Contours’ series blends clothed and nude models to great effect, and Stephen McMennamy’s Instagram feed showcases a brilliant talent for blending objects and scenes to charming effect.

 

 

Well-heeled

Shoe selfies tend to be pretty bland, but combining natty footwear with exquisite Parisian floors makes for a much richer visual treat.

 

 

Kiss it better

Natalie Irish is an artist who knows what it’s like to kiss the faces of many famous people, and her impressive paintings are a direct result.

 

 

Secrets and lies

Thrilling TV audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, The Night Manager delivered a deft blend of drama, espionage and a stellar cast. But what of the smaller details that are hardly noticeable to the casual viewer? Take a peek at the graphic design work that went into designing the world of the Night Manager.

 

 

5-star treatment

Ads for luxury hotels typically feature some fairly common visual elements. Fair play then, to the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group for bucking the trend and going text-only in their recent campaign. Some great copy and a nice dash of wit plays with convention and pays a bit of respect to their discerning clientele.

 

 

OOO

And finally, for those who had a long week of work the last thing you probably want to see is a video of boring office furniture… but with some subtle humour and charm, even that can raise a smile.
