A video jam reflecting on this season and how else we can approach it as creatives.
That good ol’ feeling… Always get a rush out of vintage. 🙂 Here, just some of the most inspired from the big Antiquariato (used-goods fest) in Ancona. Just look at those colors, the illustrations – the thought they put into it – WILD!

This is my first summer in the Italian countryside. Last year’s was spent mostly in sea-side Sardinia, so I never really had that “Italian” feeling you get from watching movies like Under the Tuscan Sun or Eat, Pray, Love. All the better, I think, as I’ve developed my own feelings about being in this country, not all of which are movie-worthy. hehe..
Still, it is a sight to see. A nice smell in the air with all the vegetation, so green and lush against the pale brick walls. Everyone a bit more perky, sociable, and finally we can wear less clothes (and flipflops!).
Oliveto gave me that Italian feeling. Its just so rustic and irresistible. Flowers jutting out from nowhere begging to get noticed even when you don’t see them, they’ll get you by the lungs!
This is a discovery – Elderflower cordial. Its fermented elderflower with sugar and lemon that just makes you want to wear a victorian gown while taking a nice cool sip. Respect the Elders!

Oh, and I designed the wedding invite too! It was their idea to have a retro postcard with an image of old Alassio and its shoreline.
