It’s all about Valentines … this week?! My days are fully packed with design for the second book this year – the studio is very busy … Plus everyday life all over plus trying to sell our lovely home. Read: +busy!
My daugther just asked me, how we should celebrate V-day? Well, we might celebrate it and perhaps all four of us. With sparkling bobles and a festive table … and a bit dancing on the table ;o) a LOVELY break.

Poul Lange collages and much more …

Waauuu … we were all totally fascinated by him. Graphic designer, fine artist, photographer, Danish, living in NYC, working at his own design studio in Manhattan for European companies as well as American. We wanted it all!
Yesterday Poul visited us here in Copenhagen at the lovely Mühlbach & Clemmensens Kreative Saloner. A very inspiring evening. Poul is very creative and talented in many ways creating collages, book sleeves, photography, type + calligraphy. Above collage is The Kir Royal Drink (the perfect Christmas drink by the way!) from Poul’s work for the cocktail recipe book Storied Sips.

The evening were mostly about Poul’s work with paper, glue, photos and callagraphy which I found VERY inspiring. I seem to sit a lot in Illustrator or Photoshop almost never “outside” my Mac anymore. Back to basic again with glue, paper and copy makers all over my studio in 2015 – yes please!
The above illustration is Poul’s own label for Beaujolais Nouveau.

Poul often sets up “rules” for making various collages. The above is one of a series of stories he created to give voice to a collection of vintage anonymous photographs. I like the “rules”-idea … a kind of theme which make you not think just create. Funny and unexspected designs occurs that way. Love it. Find all of Poul Lange’s work here and website for his collages here. Enjoy!

Make it a colorful Valentine

Naomi Robinson, bakers royale, valentines day, valentines, cocktails, romantic drinks, papaya, red grapefruit, dragonfruit, rosemary, strawberry, romatisk valentines, yummi design by signe boye, art direction within food and design, design for food, love foodWell, Valentine’s Day coming up. Why not do something colorful for your better half, best friend, who ever you think need some tender attention…  kick out the pink pastels and add some tropical notes, some hot, sweet, something new. No starters or main courses, skip dessert, make it easy: make some fruity cocktails (and you can make them super fruity with no alcohol).

#1 it’s a Singapore Sling turned tropical, or “made more tropical” with the addition of the papaya (the seeds are edible and will lend a peppery bite—totally up to you— take it or leave it) and some Serrano chilies for heat. I don’t know if the Long Bar at “Raffles Hotel” in Singapore would add Papaya & Serrano Sling to their list? Probably not! But I like this version, and I can feel a bit of peanut peels crunching under my feet while sipping it… And since my husband and I went there on our honeymoon this drink will be our 2014 Valentine cocktail.

#2 is full of blood orange against basil and it becomes the margarita meets French kiss cocktail wauuu… what a nice combination…

#3 is a very diffenrent cocktail where east meets west – a vodka chiller with dragon fruit plus melon and rosemary! Surprisingly good.

Want more edible colorful inspiration for Valentine (or any other day!): enjoy photographer + food specialist Naomi Robinson’s work and recipes at her blog Bakers Royale. Naomi’s blog is full of recipes and yummi photos of cool drinks, savory finger snacks mmmm… there are so many lovely edible ways to say ILY. Enjoy – have spicy + yummi day.
