Pictures from PAD.
I love mexican zakka and am delighted to be given the opportunity to design some new products for TITICACA, an ‘Ethnic’ theme lifestyle store in Japan. While doing research online for Mexican inspiration, I found this awesome shop in Osaka called PAD. Love their products and the way they did their product shots! Genius!
These are some behind the scenes pictures from our summer catalogue photo shoot. There was still snow on the ground and our model was freezing in the cold. I was busy going up and down the ladder to get the best shot I can. Even though I didn’t design any summer products for our catalogue this year, I was happy to be able to help my fellow designers with the photography and art direction of the catalogue.
We are having a photo shoot for our summer catalogue at Hudson Studio tomorrow. This summer, our company is launching some outdoor themed products and that is the reason why we have chosen this studio as it has a decent garden even during winter. Shootings starts really early tomorrow so I have to head to bed soon! Keeping my fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow!
Sorry for the lack of updates. I was busy going around shops, buying samples and books last week. This is one of the books I got. It’s a catalogue of mt tapes with pretty product shots and pictures of how they can be used. It also came with 2 limited edition mt tapes! A pretty good buy for 1890 yen?
Ways to use the mt tape.
on a xylophone?
on the wall.
on paper cups…
on your bike!
mt wrapping paper.
There are a few pages dedicated to KAMOI factory where these lovely mt tapes are made. It is nice to see the skilled masking tape experts behind the scenes.
Limited edition mt tape. Love the red & blue polka dot combination!
There are quite a few art museums in Venice and Palazzo Grassi was one of the modern art museums I visited.
Was nice to see Sigmar Polke’s works again. It was refreshing and inspiring.
Circus figures by Sigmar Polke.
I was quite amazed by Cindy Sherman’s works. I can’t believe that I could find the same video that was shown at the museum on youtube!
Doll Clothes by Cindy Sherman.
I didn’t get to take much pictures of the place but for more information, you can check out museum’s official website here.
