Premiere / Curated by Fine Little Day – Colorform by Kindra Murphy

Today I’m really excited to tell you about a project that I’ve been working with for a couple of months togehter with Photowall and five favorite artists/designers: Mogu TakahashiKindra Murphy, Klara BothénCecilia Pettersson and Steffie Brocoli.

The project is called Curated by Fine Little Day and it is a collection of wallpapers from above mentioned artist, selected by me. The wallpapers will be presented here and at Photowall’s blog – five days, five designs.

First up is a wallpaper by a lady that has inspired me for a long time, American graphic designer Kindra Murphy with a pattern called Colorform.

At first sight Colorform hits you like a classical medallion wallpaper. But look again, the details. I love Kindra’s playful, rough and sophisticated style, always with a good sense of humour.

Kindra Murphy is a practicing designer and Professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where she has taught Graphic Design since 2002. She has worked as a designer for Urban Outfitters, the Walker Art Center and Maine College of Art. Kindra’s print ephemera collection, vernacular signage and humorous odds-n-edds make their way into both her professional and self-initiated projects. Her work and her collections have been published both nationally and internationally.

What a great way to start this project. Find Colorform in three color ways – green, yellow and mint.

And be sure to peep in tomorrow as well when my fellow studio friend, Klara Bothén’s wallpaper will be launched!

Also take a look at Fine Little Day´s guest board over at Photowall’s Pinterest.

(Oh and thanks for all film tips in my last post. Going to be a great summer).
