Next Sunday (31st March) is Mother's Day here in the UK, so all this week I'll be bringing you highlights of this years designs as spotted on the high street. There are all kinds of styles and designs to be seen and if you haven't bought yours yet you may see just the right one here. We start with Marks and Spencer where I chose this folky stitch floral design with free enamel pin brooch for my own mum. In M&S stores now with just a few designs still available online here.

ILLUSTRATION - antti kalevi


I just felt like posting something bold and Scandinavian today for our Friday eye candy, and it doesn't get much bolder than these large colourful flowers by Finnish graphic artist Antti Kalevi. Based in his Helsinki studio Antti works on his own personal design projects in between working for commercial clients such as The New York Times and Yoox. I love these simple stylised flowers in bright flat colours which are best described by Antti : "My aim is to create work which displays things at their bare essence–while keeping the poetry." If you like their style you can see more from Antti Kalevi online here.
