Yuya Takamizawa

Thinking about trying our hands at paper cutting. These designs are the works of Japanese cutting artist, illustrator and designer Yuya Takamizawa. His work is influenced by folk art from around the world and Scandinavian design. He creates his work at Atelier Folk where he sells paper cutouts, tenugui (cloth towel), and postcards while his wife sells yeast bread and jam. You can view his work on his website and Instagram. You can also view his wife’s culinary expertise on Atelier Sparrow and on Instagram.

Juho Viitasalo

Love these simple sophisticated Nordic patterns created by Finish industrial designer Juho Viilasalo. He is currently living in Japan and is the chief designer for Propex Design, a design consultancy company in Osaka. He is also the owner and chief designer at Design Viitasalo Ltd. in Finland. The patterns have been used in smart phone cases and furoshiki (wrapping cloth) textile for the Japanese brand, Kotonowa.

Cadena + Asociados

Appreciating the brand identity of this churreria, El Moro, located in Mexico City. The design was created by Mexican designer Ignacio Cadena in his studio Cadena + Asociados. The inviting palette
is chromatic with the color white inspired by sugar. The graphic symbols are repeated on the walls, floor tiles, aprons and other food accessories.

“In contemporary societies Design is not a luxury anymore, it is a necessity. Everything around us is Design and should revolve around the direct benefit of humans and planet earth. Design today more than ever has the possibility of changing the world and the way we inhabit it”  – Cadena+Asociados
