stockholm based mingla design produce great patterns on fabric, oilcloth and laminated birch trays. jenny mahler uniyal and ann charlotte ridderstolpe are also stylists so its no suprise they have a stylish website to display their wares. i couldnt resist these two images below from their magazine press section, as they have such beautifully put together swatches and colours.

last week we looked at the work of mette scherning, and today we are looking at the works of her some time collaborater malene helbak. danish designer malene has a truly gorgeous style that manages to be bright and colourful whilst remaining refreshingly simple.
in an update to last weeks 'rice' picnicware posting post, i was asking if this print was by hanna werning. many thanks to kelly hyatt for dropping me a line. kelly regularly works with hanna , and he asked her if she had produced anything for rice. the answer was no - hence this design must be some kind of tribute to hanna's style.
it depends which way you look at it - either a homage to her influence on print fashion, or a rip-off ?

in an update to the robinsons ads - thanks to lucinda c for letting us know they were illustrated by adrian johnson (see some of his other work above). if you're in the UK, you may have noticed these adverts for robinsons appearing in the press and in magazines. they're really sweet and have a touch of japanese cute about them. see the accompanying tv ad here.

i found the work of mette scherning through marie's butik (via decor8) and thought although it is fantastically beautiful jewellery it also has a lot of inspiration to offer the 2d designer. these stylised floral motifs are just brilliant and the colours really fresh.
