3 groovy picks - Rugs, Typography, Illustration

A silent prayer goes out to Nepal in distress. In the wake of the horrific earthquake, this news about IKEA's flat-pack shelters for the displaced, is beautifully relevant. More power to socially conscious design!

That aside, here are three amazing creatives who should fire your creativity this week...
(1) Carpets by Faig Ahmed. Love the way he breaks down the conventional structure of traditional rugs and randomly rearranges the resulting components of the traditional composition.

(2) Dana Tanamachi a whiz in hand lettering and effortless typography. You've got to start with this video of her personal project called Flourish, and go from there. I am bowled away!

(3) Assa Ariyoshi's graphic illustrations. Captivated by the way she blends bold colors, straight lines, and just the right curves.

  3. Hello greetings and good wishes.

    My heart goes out to the suffering people of Nepal. It is going to take a long time to reconstruct the damages and the lives of people. They certainly need lot of help

    The carpet looks special. To me it looks like a large pond of water where people are offering prayers.

    The letter writing took my breath away. So beautiful, so lovely, so intricate, so stylish. These days people hardly use pen and paper to write but this writing is marvelous.

    The last one depicting different people doing different things is a reminder of the numerous things we have to do in our daily life. The color is sober and is soft on the eyes.

    Best wishes
