Blogger's Favorites -- SeeSaw Designs

It’s pretty safe to say that the three ladies (Angela, Lindsay and Raquel) behind graphic design & letterpress studio, Seesaw Designs are brimming with creative prowess. Their creations are perfection (their 2010 calendar is at the tippy top of my list) and the Seesaw blog is one of my daily stops (+ Angela’s personal blog is pretty awesome too…)

So of course their collaborative list is just as fantastic. That embroidered necklace is calling my name big time.

So without further ado, herewith Seesaw Design’s favorites. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

We enjoy juxtaposition in all forms. Particularly loving this balance of natural and industrial at the Kivik Art Center in Sweden.

There’s something so subtly appealing about the depth and movement in bathymetric lines. (Nature is amazing.)

Great photography and styling, like this image by photographer Sam Robinson, pretty much always brings a smile to our faces.

The three of us have varying tastes in music, but we’re always spinning something in the office, whether it be old favorites or new sounds. A few picks from this week: Andrew Bird, Laroux, The Dodos, Kid Sister.

Ampersands - they’re functional and beautiful. What’s not to love?

Can’t get enough of the current geometry trend. This embroidered necklace from Etsy seller spinthread is especially rad (yes, I bought it).

There’s a lot of mid-century architecture gems hidden around our valley. We love hometown MCM hero Al Beadle.

Of course we love letterpress (that’s why we do it!) but seriously... the paper, ink, and tactile quality... paper goods don’t get any better. Here's a close-up of our new Frank Lloyd Wright letterpress print.

We’re convinced Arizona has some of the best thrift stores, antique shops, and estate sales ever. Our mid-century and vintage collections just keep growing. This is a dress Angela just refashioned into a skirt.

We might be in the desert, but we love water. This is the most insanely amazing and perfect pool ever, Les Bains des Docks, by French architect Jean Nouvel.
