This week's design blog of the week goes to This is Paper. This is Paper curates a well rounded collection of architecture, product design, fashion design, interior design, fine art, graphic design, and photography. The blog features works that reflects an elegant and delicate design aesthetic full of soft pastels and neutrals complemented by clean lines and a touch of wood here and there. Aside from This is Paper's impeccable taste, we want to highlight that the blog often showcases student work. It is nice to see young artists and designers with fresh new ideas and even nicer to see well-known blogs recognizing the importance of supporting the up and coming not just the established.

This week we're inspired by the branding materials for jewelry line Guy & Max by the Proud Creative studio in London. They totally stole our favorite font (Gotham) that we use for a lot of our own branding, but we're willing to let it slide because it looks so good with their brand. We're loving the photography and business cards, but it's the storefront that really does it for us. The awning is beveled to look like a diamond - subtle, but it really adds dimension. The addition of the photography in the window (a collaboration between Guy & Max and English photographer Jason Tozer) gives it the finishing touch of perfection. Good work, guys.

As we all know, Tom Ford is an amazing multi talented designer. From clothing to film, and now jewelry everything he touches is remarkable and ultimately beautiful. I love that he is not drawn to convention, and dances to his own beat. Using older and unconventionally striking models for his latest run way show is one of his beats that I am loving and singing to.
