Collection hits stores September 13.
The video is a bit cheesy but the final product still looks great. Going to try making one this weekend…
Last night, when I was up on the computer instead of sleeping, I discovered Plenty of Colour, a design blog where pretty much every post makes me happy just looking at it (described by another as a “rainbow orgasm” also accurate). The blog is the brainchild of Chloé Douglas a designer based in Vancouver. Check out her pinterest site too for more beautiful inspiration.

Check out Jennifer Causey’s photo collection called The Makers Project. Her photographs are beautiful and showcase different designers and artisans in their studios (almost all of the “makers” are Brooklyn-based). Scroll through the entire set of pictures and you’ll also find a short interview.
I am lucky to live in Brooklyn, New York. It’s a place full of energy and creative spirit; located close enough to the lights and frenetic energy of Manhattan to have a big city feel, yet far away enough to give a sense of space and small town community. In this hectic, industrialized modern world, I am constantly seeking handmade and artisan-produced products. I love discovering people who embrace a more tactile way of living, so I decided to start photographing them. When my project began, I knew I was photographing people who make things, but I soon realized I was also photographing people who make things happen. As the project evolves, so does the adventure and pleasure of documenting the people behind the products: to learn what inspires them, what keeps them going, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work. I hope you enjoy it!
