Black Barbie

Italian Vogue's July special supplement is dedicated black Barbie dolls. The first black Barbie doll, Francie, was created in 1967 and 1980. "The new Italian Vogue supplement sounds like a cleverly orchestrated promotion for Barbie's next line of black dolls [So In Style dolls]."

"...we would rather have seen another all-black issue with actual people. But maybe it's harder to find sponsorship for that." -Barbie In Vogue [British Vogue]

Things that make you go mmm...



R.I.P 1993-2008
The recent demise of Vibe magazine sounded the end of another musical era. Dubbed as the "Black Rolling Stone" by Wikipedia, it infused everything with hip-hop + soul as it ventured out into non-musical terrains.

We loved Vibe magazine. Not so much for the insightful articles but more so for their photographic + design + typographic styling that evoked wit, attitude and creative flair. The redesign, in 2008, only further solidify the praised it received in Print Magazine's 2004 Issue and by Pentagram.

There's always the online version of the popular Vibe magazine. It provides coverage of urban music and fashion, cars, and electronic gadgets.

Work: Editor-in-chief Danyel Smith, art director Mark Shaw, and photo editor Robyn Forest, Luke Hayman and Gary Koepke.

Barbie's Dream House
"Barbie was a dream client because she doesn't have a husband to rein in the fantasy or tone down the glamour."
- Jonathan Adler-


Muneza's Canvas

Montreal based painter / photographer Muneza uses objects and light in a way to tell a story, her story. Her choices of -bright- hues and her meticulous attention to details gives her work this too true-to-life touch that makes it even more captivating.

Life is a great big canvas and you should throw all the paint on it, if you can.
