So where exactly is Le Marche you ask?
Well, that’s the number one question friends have asked us when we describe our trip to Italy. The Marche region lies on the east coast of Italy, between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. So if you drive from Rome towards Umbria and hang a right just before Florence, you’ll pass through Le Marche on your way to the coast.
What you’ll find is a region comparably ‘untouched’, borrowing the best of Umbria’s rolling hills and juxtaposing it with a long coastline of white sandy beaches and fortified coastal cities.
*Sigh* even weeks later, I still feel a hint of that warm Italian summer air.
Mark had never been to Italy, but I had many years ago. I thought I knew what to expect, but honestly, even retreading old footsteps felt like a new experience with perfect weather and a husband to share it with.
First up was Rome.
Well hello and Happy 2018!
Last weekend I visited the much talked about (and Instagrammed) Intermission Project at the Collingwood Arts Precinct. The project showcases over 35 artists who had the freedom to decorate walls, floors and stairwells of the 3 floor vacant Collingwood Technical School.
Read more about the Intermission Project via The Design Files.
Currently open at 35 Johnson Street Collingwood and runs until this Sunday, January 21st.
Oh my gosh, if you are a fan of beautiful photography, colour and Wes Anderson, you’re going to want to follow this Instagram feed.
It features the best in daily Wes Anderson content from the Subreddit, (where it all originally started) and provides fascinating info about each location photographed by various photographers.
I found it super hard to choose only a few photos for this post so check out more here at @accidentallywesanderson
Recently the 2017 AGDA Design Award finalists were announced and there was plenty to feast your eyes on. But Sydney agency Re was certainly a standout for me for their Bare Witness cafe branding.
Re‘s work for Bare Witness has been chosen for a few awards for animation, illustration for design and branding for small business. And well deserved I say! I absolutely love their colours, clean packaging and stationery design along with Chris Delorenzo’s playful illustrations. Those coffee cups especially are by far some of the prettiest cups I’ve seen!
Be sure to check out more of Re’s awesome work here and more amazing work from AGDA Design Award finalists here.
