One of my greatest sources of inspiration year after year are Marimekko's vibrant, graphic prints. Their use of color and pattern is always fresh, bold, and surprising. To just look at their products fills me with awe and makes me want to be a better designer. Enjoy this video with Design Manager, Noora Niinikoski as she talks about the company and the collaboration they just launched this year with Converse.

oh, Antartica - ice sculptures

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I've been thinking a lot about my trip to Antartica lately, especially with the temps what they've been.
I'm fascinated by this continent and read and watch everything I can on this treacherous, luminous, awe-inspiring land. It's inspired me to look back through my photo's at one of my favorite parts of the journey -
the Stunning ice sculptures. They rise up from the water in every direction refracting sunlight and creating sublime views. We were able to take our zodiacs to tour through mazes of these sculptures, sometimes majestic, sometimes slowly melting away and disappearing into the sea. As an artist interested in the details of things, I was especially enthralled when we were able to get up close enough to see the details - striations, dips, seemingly chiseled masses of ice/snow + drips falling from the underbelly's as they melted in the sun.

Now that i'm seriously wanderlusting as I reflect on this trip, I can't help but share some incredible photo's of the wildlife tomorrow.
