Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Yuwa – Kumiko Fujita

Kumiko Fujita is a graphic designer and patchwork book author with an interest in typography. I adore this new calendar-inspired collection of hers from Yuwa. The collection comes in five or six colorways — I only shot a couple of one print (didn’t want to look like a crazy person!) I don’t know when it [...]

Daily Swatch: Words and Letters

WTF?, originally uploaded by calicoon. Oops! I realized I didn’t schedule this one properly so it didn’t make it up on Tuesday. Text beginning “once upon a time” floats behind images depicting Aesop’s fables (fox and grapes, tortoise and hare, etc.). The words disintegrate into unreadability — what an interesting design choice! Related posts: Daily [...]
