IMG_4633

How can we escape to Italy and not pay homage to Maranello? A mecca of impeccable design and engineering, it is home to the Ferrari factory, Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team and the Museo Ferrari…

Spectacular design is everywhere…

A special section for Ferraris in the movies…

These retro styles and color combinations had us floored…

Driven with all this inspiration, of course we wanted more! Our next pitstop… 15-18 kilometers away in Modena for the Museo Enzo Ferrari. Stay tuned for more design and print inspiration!

Printsperation: Reykjavik, Iceland

Traveling is a tool for creative inspiration and we try our best to see the world.  The change of surroundings can change the way one thinks as we find ways to improve our design and craft. New experiences bring about new ideas.

With an open heart and an open mind, we made our way to the unknown and other-worldly Iceland…

Back to basics. A simple signage of wooden planks and stenciled letters.

Back to basics. A simple signage of wooden planks and stenciled letters.

Signs, murals, maps, graffiti, skulls, owls, vikings, beliefs and superstitions, and politics, this artistic city’s many forms of expressions. No wonder many call Reykjavik as hipster central-

Printsperation: Marimekko, Copenhagen, Denmark

We can never contain ourselves whenever we spot a Marimekko print, like this one in Italy…

Citerna, Perugia

So imagine us going bananas when we spotted a Marimekko store in Copenhagen!

Always way too excited to enter one…

Marimekko, always a winner in our books.

Printsperation: Hotel Fox, Copenhagen, Denmark

Always on the go, searching for inspiration, our journey has taken us to Copenhagen, Denmark’s Hotel Fox. A haven for local artists, the hotel served as their canvas.

Each room had an artist to express their art and style. Not only local Danish artists, but Hotel Fox featured Swiss artist, Benjamin Gudel, an illustrator with  roots from the underground comic world.

Not just limited to painting, the hotel also exhibited photography.
