This has been a long time coming, but I wanted to give a big shout-out to graphic design studio ‘Eyesberg’ run by creative duo Amy Suo Wu and Tim Braakman. Amy is an incredibly talented Sydney-born, Rotterdam based designer and educator at Willem de Kooning Academy. She also happens to be my cousin, who I grew up with in the wild wild west (-ern suburbs) of Sydney.
These are some examples of their work. Eyesberg studios also designs some pretty slick websites. One of these days she will kindly offer to redesign my blog and logos (*hint* are you listening, Amy?).
” Eyesberg is a Rotterdam based (graphic) design studio motivated by conceptual and experimental approaches. Eyesberg consists of Tim Braakman and Amy Suo Wu.
Next to running Eyesberg, Tim Braakman is also an independent illustrator, and one of the founding members of curatorial collective, Trailer. He has worked as project manager and assistant curator at Showroom MAMA.
Amy Suo Wu has a hybrid practice as a designer, artist and educator. She teaches Design Research, Concept & Image, Hacking minor at the Willem de Kooning Academy. ”

I had a great time seeing the makeup artistry on the runways this season, and I’ve put together some of my favourite looks from Style.com here. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
For the A/W 2013 runway, Peter Philips wanted makeup that would be beautiful close up and equally as eye catching from a distance. The silver sequins/jumbo glitter, which were placed from the inner corner of the eyes and extended outwards is makeup art perfection, and I can imagine the extra sequins placed on the model’s lashes would have caught the lights beautifully on the runway as they moved their eyes.
Dianne Kendal created an amazing dimensional smoky eye that brings to mind stars in the night sky. She layered 3 different types of glitter on top of NARS Outremer and the yet to be released NARS Solomon Islands Eye Paint to achieve the dazzling effect. Ah-mazing.
