Textiles are pretty powerful—they can completely transform a space by infusing freshness and interest wherever they're applied. For uber-cool textile designer Nasozi Kakembo (who also happens to be one of our super talented House Tour contributors ), it turns out they can be life-changing in other ways, too. Her array of handmade textiles from her xNasozi brand combine artistry with philanthropy in one fell swoop. READ MORE »

The Core77 discussion board is a great place not only to share your bright and shiny final products, but also your ever-evolving process and progress. Given there are a number of people who utilize the boards in some ways we envisioned it and in many ways far beyond, we love giving shout-outs to those who use the platform to connect with other designers and help other readers learn something along the way. One such designer dedicated to sharing her process is Seattle based designer Sophie Horton Jones, who started posting some of her quick concept sketches earlier last year as she was looking for technical feedback from fellow designers. We've enjoyed following her posts and taking a look at her ideas and ongoing sketch challenges. As a designer who has worked primarily in the toy industry, she has mastered a toy-like aesthetic with thick borders, large annotations, and a playful style: Character baby monitors with camera and a multitude of sensors (sound, heat, movement etc) Kids Nutribullet style blender with multi-function cap.

He found a reasonably priced space with two large bedrooms in the same neighborhood and acquired a roommate along the way. “I actually moved a block away from my old apartment. It was so close that it was more convenient to walk a few of my large canvases down to my new apartment rather than pack them in a truck.” The space boasts a scenic view of the Country Club Plaza, green trees and a guaranteed sunrise that fills the rooms with a warm glow every morning. In true designer form, Lance started his decorative process with a mood board, combining ideas that he found inspiring. He admits, “then the reality set in and I realized I had to work with what I’ve got.” Lance discovered a love of breathing new life into old things by using what he already had or collecting found objects to fill his new surroundings. As an introvert, his goal is to create a space that speaks volumes about who he is, without having to spell it out.

Andrea Aidekman writes, "I'm a cartoonist and graphic designer from New York. I was asked by a few friends to make some posters for the women's marches on Saturday. I made this little vagina/eye logo and I really got on a roll and designed 10 posters . I want everyone to have a chance to have a well designed and provocative poster so if you need one you can download and print your favorite, or all of them!" (more)

Branding & Visual Identity: Two12 Studios AoiroStudio Jan 17, 2017 We would like to share this branding and visual identity by Alaa Tameem and his work for Two12 Studios. About this project, what I liked the most was the part of the logo exploration where you can see all the iterations and as you can see from the first rough mockups to the shortlisted ones. Really love this and it’s quite inspiring to learn from. One thing though, the gradients are definitely back! Alaa Tameem is an art director and graphic designer currently based in Amman, Jordan. With 5 years of experience under the belt, it's great to see Alaa shifting his work empathy towards branding and web design. branding visual identity graphic design

Interior designer, Lesley Taylor explains how to make a splash with a bathroom makeover that doesn't break the bank... Bathroom renovations command quite the price tag ranging in price from around £2,500 up to £6,000 and beyond. For the average Joe or Joanne, this isn't small change, especially after all the expense of the festive season. But it doesn't have to be this way, and you don't have to put up with a damp, dark and lacklustre bathing space that offers little in...

Relocations from one country to another are usually accompanied by containers of possessions. Not so for Veena Mohan. Drawn to Hong Kong to be with family, the artist and grandmother of eight arrived in October with a single suitcase. I have a house in Mumbai but I didnt want to disturb or empty it by bring-ing furniture here with me, she says. It was also a good opportunity to start afresh and buy everything new so it would all fit in the apartment and go...

Just in time for Nintendo's anxiously awaited (and slightly confusing) new Switch presentation , product designer Avichai Tadmor is here to serve us some refreshing OG Mario style. His product, the Ravanello , spins sharp and tangy radishes into cool power-up mushrooms with a few quick twists. The tool shaves the radish "stem" much like a pencil, and the tip of the tool neatly notches out those magic mushroom dots. The result is a silly but fun presentation for an often overlooked veggie, perfect for salads, kids' lunches, or preparing to smash through brick walls like a tiny plumber. Much like the Switch the Ravanello won't ship for a few weeks, but unlike the Switch it's a cheap level up with little room for awkward surprises.

Hard to argue against that sentiment. Wade did admit that he toyed with the idea of doing a purple-and-gold two-tone scheme, but ultimately decided against it, presumably because purple and white just fit Prince’s character much better. His work on the Regera even extends to the car’s interior where the whole cabin was dressed in “snow whiteleather to go with a basket weave seat pattern. He also did point out that while the rendering shows blue contrast stitching, the actual Regera – if Koenigsegg does end up making one – will have the purple stitching. Regardless of his motivations in rendering the Regera in honor of Prince, the result is actually pretty spectacular. Maybe Koenigsegg boss Christian von Koenigsegg should take a look at his copywriter’s work here and reevaluate his position in the company. Copywriter/designer seems a more apt job title for Wade, doesnt it? Continue after the jump to read the full story.
