The Hand-Picked featured works for October are mythical, refreshingly conservative and very stylish. Were these projects your favorites this month? If so, tell me about it. If not, tell me about that too! Here they are:
While I couldn't find a precise definition of the word "noomeci", this gorgeous creature says enough on its own about the mystical place it must come from. Artist Chantelle Basson said, "...the Noomeci persona represent everything I believe, my ideals and what I stand for as a person as well as an artist." See the full transformation from lineart to finished piece and much more in Chantelle's portfolio.
Who doesn't love a long, hot shower? Sadly these simple indulgences take a serious toll on our energy and water supplies. Thanks to industrial designers like David Bruer, conserving water and energy doesn't have to mean the end of our much loved shower routines. David and classmates Jonas Kristiansson, Jonathan Hedin, Daniel Amosy, Petter Polsson and David Lamm, created "ReFresh", a shower that saves energy by reusing water while giving the user a spa-alike experience. Read more about this brilliant design and more of David's projects in his portfolio.
Clean lines and a bold color palette make this Adidas by Stella McCartney accessories collection a Hand-Picked favorite. From iridescent materials to minimally styled fanny packs, these pieces are a throw back and a step forward at the same time, mixing the Adidas sportiness with Stella McCartney cool. Rana has been working as an accessories designer for the Adidas Group since 2007, so chech out her work here.
