Coffee love

Swallow Cafe Brooklyn Coffee Shop

Well hello gorgeous... you're good looking, serve what looks like great coffee, and you're in New York. It's as though the Classifieds Looking for Love Fairy Godparents were answering all of my deepest wishes!

The talented cads behind this handsome coffee spot are from No Entry Design, and they definitely know what they're doing.

The dreamiest part of it all is that Swallow Cafe is a twin! You can get your fix in both Williamsburg and Bushwick.

I love that all the beautiful branding was hand painted - it looks and feels so special. And is a testiment to the talent of the designers!

So Pretties, if you find yourself in the neighbourhood, go check it out and send us pics, so we can live vicariously through you!

Images I Love

I have a folder on my desktop of images I love, and that have stuck with me over the years. When I’m feeling blue, or uninspired, or lazy, I take a peek at some of them for an instant visual pick-me-up. This is one of my favourites -  a conceptual poster by a designer named Roland Tiangco. The back of the poster is coated with pigment, and the front is spot-varnished (more on the production here). As you unfold the poster, your hands inevitably get stained with the pigment on the back, which ends up getting onto the front, revealing the hidden message. So simple, but so powerful.
