I follow so many design blogs, that some days I’m overwhelmed by content. But once in a while they lead me to discover a new artist or idea that leaves me so inspired or happy, which makes the information overload so worth it.

Photography by Hideaki Hamada
The Japan based photographer has been shooting photos of his children Haru and Mina since they were born. Aside from the boys’ adorableness, the pictures capture a wonderful innocence and joie de vivre. Hideaki uploads new photos to his website regularly.
Design by Patricia Povoa
Portugal based designer Patrícia Póvoa has a fantastic minimalist style that is engaging and eye-catching. Her series titled Copyrighted Famous Hairs has been circulating around design blogs for a while. What appeals to me in all her work is the color choices and composition, combined with simplistic graphics. Also her use of textures- I love a well placed texture!
Kid’s Republic Bookstore
If there was a bookstore like this in NYC I don’t think I would ever want to leave!
Food Art by Vanessa Dualib
Vanessa Dualib is a Sao Paulo based photographer. She has a few series of food-based photos which are humorous and creative.
Her style reminds me of a school project I once did- after photographing peppers and various other vegetables with eyes stuck on, I created a mini book. (below)
