Change is Here!


Dear readers,
You are following and reading my inspirations for almost a year now, so I think this is the right moment to say a big big thank you and to celebrate this with a brand new face. As many of you already know, this blog was created because of my big love in graphic design, photography and art. This love grew even more in 2012, with more readers and supporters joining the blow.

I think that this is an opportune moment to take a big step and change the look of to something more modern, friendly and easy for exploring. A change that brought the need for a new logo. An iconic logo that combines all forms of design into one piece. A logo that can be transformed in many visions as you transform your visions to wonderful designs and photos.

This new brand designed by me, Maria Papaefstathiou, encapsulates my commitment to deliver inspiration that is advanced, unique, modern, contemporary, and a catalyst for your designs.
