Purp Alert | December 2016
Welcome to the Purp Alert. A monthly edit of fascinating finds I discover on the internet. I'll be highlighting anything from emerging artists, entrepreneurial advice, to things that make me laugh. If it inspired me, or helped me get through the month, you'll see it here. Let's get started!
Combining religious traditions and love for sport, Victor Solomon manages to create the most luxurious backboards in existence. Materials include stained glass, Swavorski crystal, and 24K gold. Check out more of his work HERE.
One of my biggest goals in life is to create my own world through my art and Charlotte Rutherford has done just that. Through photography she creates vibrant imagery, that is both wacky and thought provoking. You've probably seen her recent work with Paper Magazine & Amber Rose.
Alpha Channeling is definitely a MUST follow Artist on Instagram. She creates colorful and very erotic colored pencil drawing that will make you have a double take while you scroll down your feed. There's lots of cool work in her print shop too!
Roksanda Ilincic AW15
Brightly colored fur exploded on the AW15 catwalk, and I have to say Roksanda did it the best. The brilliant use of color and texture, was a huge inspiration to my recent rebrand. And even outside the rainbow layered furs, the collection is truly amazing.
Tame Impala - The Less I Know The Better
Known for their psychedelic sound, this month Tame Impala released a trippy new video for their song, The Less I know the Better. It's like a modern day version of Baby Hit me One More Time, but with symbolism and out of the box graphics & set design. Watch it HERE.
Glitch Textiles is founded by Brooklyn Artist and designer, Philip David Stearns. He makes beautiful textiles inspired by the abstract and invisible language of digital technologies. A perfect christmas gift for a graphic designer friend aka ME! Shop through the entire collection HERE.
