I’ve recently discovered the design studio Blacklist. The design studio is based in Sydney, Australia. It was founded in 2008 by husband and wife Nathan and Jaynie Johnson. Blacklist produces a range of art prints, stationery and paper goods, which I’ll show you below. I’ve picked out a few things from the collection, which I would love to have in my own home.

There is a cute little webshop called minimega with a lot of very cool stuff. I’ve known about the shop for some time now, and I keep returning for inspiration. The fact that I’m practically addicted to notebooks and various paper stuff, might have something to do with my fascination with this shop. And of course Sara’s amazing design.
minimega is owned and founded by graphic designer Sara Andersen in 2008. In 2009 she opened the minimega shop.
One of my favourite items in the shop is Sara’s serie of eco-friendly paper products. And lately I’ve been returning to the shop to look at the new neon paper balls. They would look amazing hanging from the ceiling in our living room.
Sara also writes a blog, which will keep you up to date with her latest creations and it’s bound to inspire you.
Graphic designer and illustrator Clara von Zweigbergk designed this Themis Mobile for Artencnica‘s for their 2010 summer collection. It is a delicate, geometric sculpture composed of five colorful, faceted ornaments. When I first saw it, I put the mobile on my kids’ wishlist. However, as time went by I kept thinking that the mobile would look great in our living room. So guess what, the Themis Mobile is now on my list. And now there is a new Themis Mobile II in stores.
Clara von Zweigbergk was born in Stockholm 1970. She studied illustration and graphic design in Sweden, France and USA. She culminated her studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, after which she worked as a graphic designer for several advertising agencies and designers in Stockholm.
In 1997 she founded Rivieran Design Studio, with two partners, as a multi-disciplinary agency spawning many successful collaborations with fashion, illustration, architecture, furniture, product and graphic design. Rivieran quickly gained the eye of the press for its unique structure and interior space.
She has designed and illustrated several books, among the “A Collection of Tickets” by Carouschka which has become a cult item in Japan. After four years as a graphic designer at Lissoni Associati in Milano, with clients such as Boffi, Porro and Alessi, she has now re-started her studio in Stockholm.
Inspired by the polyhedron solid, the five faceted geometric shapes are actually hollow ornaments lending to the lightness and bounce of the mobile when touched. Each ornament is individually colored in fluorescent neons, purples and browns.
Statement by Clara:
“The shapes quickly came together as a mobile. I think of them as planets and like to see the colors change while gently turning.”
