Freelancers, who joined forces after finishing studies at the Academy of Fine Arts (Poznan), Magda Katek and Kamil Jerzkowshi built little Ah&Oh Studios in 2008. Located in Jazyce (somewhere very East) the two use an ultimate heart melting aim and apply it to all of their projects. Mainly dealing with graphic design, identity, branding and packaging, the team manage work that is incredibly beautiful but practical. And brief answering.
They have a blog which might need some check back (being under construction and all) but I'm excited to keep an eye open on these two.

Holding a BFA in Industrial Design, Blanca finds inspiration in the world around her. Natural twigs, leaves, seeds are all used as the basis of her work. All of the gold is also recycled.
Wedding invites are such a big deal. The stationary you provide is often the first glimpse at the tone of the day for many guests, and has such a big play on getting excitement mounting for the day. Sending the invitations can be such a pain in the ass especially if you have a lot to fit in one envelope. And to top it off, Australia post does do personalised stamps... IF you are happy to have a foul stock image adjoined to the one you choose for yourself.
Trump them by sending your invites with VerdeStudio's "unUsed" Vintage post stamps. If you live anywhere other than the US you may also need to attach a country stamp, but one up the post and use airmail instead. Its cheaper and the stamps are similar in vintage feel to Verde's. Cute are the country versions, especially if you met, found love, found a diamond, or perhaps are planning a vaca post wedding in a particular country.

Lead vocalist for Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós, as well as an acclaimed solo artist, Jón “Jónsi” Þór Birgisson would otherwise have the world as we know it stacked against him - being openly gay, as well as disabled - however his unbelievable falsetto voice and crazy amazing cello bow on guitar make him such a sound of now. His beautiful 2010 album "Go" produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, Tokyo Police Club) was an amazing buy and I recommend picking it up... perfect listening in on a Sunday afternoon with friends over for a warming up roast, or bbqs under coloured light bulbs in the summer afternoon sun.

I love his style and rarely see a piece that I wouldn't want to hang on a brilliant white wall, over a wrought iron fireplace paralleled with two tan, lace up leather armchairs and cornered off by beautiful natural brown and grey weave low line couches. Throw in these incredible Spanish mustard coloured tea glasses I picked up two weeks ago (that have a tan leather cupping them), filled with a gorgeous deep, yummy Tempranillo and fresh green olives, beautiful friends and that's a night from heaven.
