Nature by Numbers

For a pattern lover like me, Nature is almost always the best inspiration. The people from Eterea Studios have made a great inspirational video where they link us mathematics with patterns in nature. A great watch for all you pattern lovers out there!

Patterned Lamps

13:39 in Designers, Inspiration by Studio Ludens

Sometimes you discover an artist so talented that you cannot keep it to yourself. Przemek Krawczyński is from Poland and creates amazingly intricate lamps made from the Gourd fruit. He makes all of these by hand, though a painstakingly detailed process. Judge for yourself the beauty of the patterns he creates with such simple basic materials.

Andy Gilmore creates these amazingly intricate geometric patterns, mostly by hand in Illustrator and Photoshop. We wonder what would happen when you use Repper to create this… The fractal nature of these images reminds me of the things you can do with Elise.

Interview with Rivka Dieho

12:15 in Interview by Studio Ludens

For our third interview we have found you an amazingly talented designer from the Netherlands. We love her unique style and are happy she gave us some of her time to talk about her work & interests.

By Rivka Dieho

Hi Rivka! Can you tell a bit about yourself?

I’m a jewellery designer and a graphic designer at a fashion company. There I design hangtags and flyers. It is wonderful to earn money by being creative and having just enough time to work on my own projects.

My interests are: the world… I get my inspiration from a film, an object, trash, a beautiful font, the colors of an animal or even someone’s personality. My favourite inspirations are David Attenborough documentaries and any art blog.
