                                I’m currently following along <a href="https://www.instagram.com/atelierdore/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Garance Dore/Atelier Dore’s</a> trip to Marrakech on Instagram and I’m so inspired by the city’s bright and bold color palette, woven textures, pottery and tiles, and shapely architecture. Since I’m not planning to go to Marrakech anytime soon, here are a few items from <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> that would help me pretend like I’m there&#8230;

Surface Pattern Designer Kangan Arora Is Branching Out

                                <em>In the latest of our monthly series profiling designers based in the UK and Europe, our editor at large Katie Treggiden talks to London-based designer <a href="https://www.kanganarora.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Kangan Arora</a>.</em>

                                Born in Northern India and resident in London, surface pattern designer <a href="https://www.kanganarora.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Kangan Arora</a> takes inspiration from everywhere and, as a result, her work is every bit as bold, vibrant and colorful as you might expect.
She was born in Ludhiana, a city known for its hosiery mills and industry, where her family still runs a textiles business originally established by her great-grandfather. “From a really young age I was surrounded by beautiful fabrics, embroideries, and prints,” she says. “I remember going on buying trips with my dad and helping him choose stock for the showroom and feeling quite pleased that I had made a small contribution and my opinion had counted.” Despite this early start, it was by no means a foregone

Copenhagen-based design companies MOEBE, Paper Collective, and Norm Architects, joined forces to release a series of art prints that were designed specifically to hang within the MOEBE frame. Floating Leaves features transparent botanical photographs that give the illusion of actual leaves suspended within the frame. The photographs were made using UV printing allowing a photo to be printed onto transparent foil. The prints, which come in three different sizes, are then From Jonas Bjerre Poulsen of Norm Architects: The Floating Leaves are inspired by the gathering of botanic samples and classic botanic illustration. Playing with a mix of fresh greens and elements of decay, the Leaves become an expression of passing time and changing seasons. Through the transparency of print and frame the leaves get a unique sense of multi-dimensionality rarely achieved in printed products.

Snapshots of Palm Springs from Society6

                                I’m ready for a mini vacation and thankfully, Palm Springs is just a hop, skip and jump away from where I live. I love that in Southern California, you’re only a few hours drive away from the beach, mountains, or desert. As with most places, Palm Springs holds a special place in my heart for its mid-century modern architecture, pops of bright colors, and palm trees at every turn. Here are a few of my favorite <a href="https://society6.com/s?q=palm+springs&amp;context=prints?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">photo art prints</a> that recently joined <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a>:

Seeing Shapes in Terrazzo with Society6

                                Earlier this week I saw <a href="http://design-milk.com/fict-design-studio-reimagines-uses-for-mother-of-pearl/"  rel="noopener noreferrer" data-wpel-link="internal">these images</a> and they kind of took my breath away. The chips of pearl accented by golden brass were just too pretty to ignore and made me take notice of the different shapes of the pearl because of the iridescent reflections bouncing off the surfaces. These coasters and trays aren’t made of terrazzo but could be a close cousin, in my opinion. The beauty of terrazzo is that every slab is unique because of the different shapes and materials mixed in. Inspired by this, I checked to see if any artists on <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> had made a print of this pattern because I could definitely see the jewel-like pattern framed in a living room or even a nursery. Sure enough, <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6’s collective of artists</a> are two steps ahead of me. Here are some of my favorite prints of this fun pattern…

                                After coming home inspired from NYC, I’ve been having a moment with lines – in art, in architecture, in everyday moments. I’ve just been noticing them more in my everyday space (no doubt thanks to New York’s vertigo-inducing architecture at every turn). Thanks to <a href="https://society6.com/curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a>, I found that lots of artists are loving the simple line too and have made some pretty awesome <a href="https://society6.com/prints?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">art prints</a> with it.

La-La-Loving Prints From Society6

                                I hate to join the bandwagon but I’m currently obsessed with the movie La La Land. I went to the theater with major skepticism that any movie could be <em>that </em>good (and this was <em>after</em> it broke film history and won all of those awards). Alas, I’m currently typing this up with “City of Stars” playing on repeat for the past 4 hours and I’ve seen the movie more times than I care to admit.

The Audiographa Project Captures the Compositions of Music

                                Imagine your favorite song for a moment – not just the melody or rhythm, but also any visuals that emerge when attuned to the memory of this song. Does the music spread wide and evenly, remain compact and intense, or oscillate wildly in all directions? <a href="http://audiographa.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Audiographa</a> – a personal project of print, web and UX designer <a href="http://www.eric-michael.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Eric Zwierzynski</a>, begun in 2016 with the intent of creating 260 computer-generated vector graphics over the course of the year (one for each weekday) – is the graphic manifestation of this exercise.
Zwierzynski’s year long exercise in auditory imagery has produced a diverse catalog of graphic images representing a spectrum of musicians and genres of music as varied as the stark minimalism of Steve Reich, the careless whispers of George Michael, to the blitzkrieg thunder of Motörhead. Zwierzynski’s Audiographa series also occasionally taps into the embedded synesthesia related to memory of colors connected with the colors originally used

Metallic Foil Art Inspired By Urban Cities

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/metallic-foil-art-inspired-by-urban-cities/onedesignspace-urbangeometriesposter_mockup_blue-final/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://1.design-milk.com/images/2017/02/onedesignspace-urbangeometriesPoster_Mockup_blue-final-810x818.jpg" alt="Metallic Foil Art Inspired By Urban Cities" /></a>
                                Make/100 is a set of limited art prints that are inspired by the everyday geometry found in London architecture. Inspired by the shapes and facades of the city, <a href="http://www.onedesignspace-shop.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">onedesignspace</a> translated these shapes into a set of patterns, which are then combined to create one print that encourages one to find beauty in unusual places.
Each print is hand-printed in three different color schemes—Dark Gray, Imperial Blue, and Claret. Then, the paper is foiled with a contrasting color to make it really pop. Moreover, each piece is highly dynamic and changes with the light and angle. You can get an art print of your own on Kickstarter.

The Los Angeles-based company publishes and produces editioned work from a variety of emerging and established contemporary artists and designers. Choosing <a href="https://anotherfinemess.com/collections/limited-editions" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">limited editions</a> and <a href="https://anotherfinemess.com/collections/art-prints" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">series</a> over mass-produced artwork, their focus is more on quality and not quantity and by keeping the art highly curated, they&#8217;re able to attract a higher caliber of artist, all of which are personally invited. The best part? They&#8217;re still extremely affordable. Now that they&#8217;ve launched and all is running smoothly, they&#8217;ll be releasing even more limited edition works.
