Woodstorming

We are always on the lookout for crochet projects and found these great snowflake wall decor on Etsy. They are the creations of Lithuania-based couple, Audruis and Virginija and sold under the brand name, Woodstorming. They are known for their handmade wood creations of ring boxes, office accessories and home decorations but our eyes gravitated towards their crochet and wood hangings.

You can follow the couple on Facebook and Instagram. Their items can be purchased on Etsy and Big Cartel.

Margaret Scrinkl

We love these cut paper illustrations created by Russian Federation-based illustrator and animator, Margaret Scrinkl. Small leaves, blossoms and other natural elements form the basis of her work cutting all of the details by hands, sometime looking like jewelry work. More of her work can be found on her website, Behance, Facebook and Instagram. A few of her pieces are available for purchase here in her Etsy shop.

Eight Hour Day

Eight Hour Day (EHD) is the graphic design and illustration studio of Nathan Strandberg and Katie Kirk. We were first attracted to their black and white art print series of the zodiac signs and knew we had to feature their work. The Minneapolis-based husband and wife team works in close collaboration on most projects most particularly on branding. They give us a little insight on their role as designers on Grain Edit:

“As designers, we’re constantly looking, searching and evaluating the world around us: what’s working, what isn’t, how things could be better. During our initial mood-board and concept phases, these are the questions we always ask ourselves, directly or indirectly. Asking the right questions isn’t the same as relying on hard numbers, but I don’t feel like they are any less important. Plus, I feel if hard numbers, data spreadsheets and focus groups ran the world of design, I think it would be a pretty sad and boring place.”

You can follow this design team on their website, Instagram and Dribble. Prints on a few of their work are available for purchase on Etsy.
