At the start of the year there always seems to be a lot of ‘new’ – new websites, new online projects, new product lines, new exhibitions, new ideas.
So here’s a few great art and design happenings I’ve spotted lately – mostly by friends.
I made myself a new Emma Makes website over the break. I wrote about it the other day but you might have missed that.
Becka and Richard at Bliss in a Teacup have created a beautiful new website, new product range and a new summer look book. They’ve reworked their design and branding and are also currently running a competition on their Facebook page. Their blog has been great reading recently too.
Dear Colleen has recently signed up to Society6, which is an international site turning designs into iPod covers, cushions, prints, t-shirts and other great things. I particularly like this cushion.
If you’re in Christchurch you could take a drive out to Little River to see my friend Lynn’s exhibition. It’s entirely filled with work made by Taylors, which is a weird but hilarious theme.
Cheese Before Bedtime is one of my favourite sellers on Felt and is their current featured seller. She makes stitched artworks – if you comment below her feature you can win an artwork too. Or win and give it to me!
