Instagrammer of the week #025

Yas Imamura from Quill & Fox has long been one of my favourite designers. I’m not sure what it was exactly that drew me to her work, but it is so sweet and endearing. I have a few of her prints and I just love her illustrations. Not only is she super talented, she’s also super sweet too. Follow Yas on Instagram.

Frazier & Wing


I am pretty much in love with these. Frazier & Wing is a Portland, OR (see! again with Portland!) based studio that makes the prettiest paper mobiles that I’ve come across. They cascade beautifully and the colours that Heather (the lady behind the prettiness) uses are just perfect. I would love to hang one in my office one day. Just looking at it would make me happy.

Greetings from Portland


I have a thing for Portland, Oregon. I think it’s related to my Elliott Smith obsession. Or perhaps it’s because I have such fond memories of the Pacific Northwest from my time living in Vancouver. Anyway, I’ve started collecting postcards and artwork from Oregon-based artists and these little beauties are on my to-buy list. The artist is Agnes Barton-Sabo and her store is Betty Turbo. You can check out the cards, and some of her other sweet illustrations, here.
