Vivienne Tam Speical Edition HP Digital Clutch

Like all designers and art majors, I am a loyal Apple user. But the new special edition HP digital clutch designed by the famous Vivienne Tam makes me, for the first time ever, actually want to own a PC. The very beautiful and stylish notebook was unveiled at Vivienne Tam's fashion show during New York's Fashion Week in September. This very fashionable notebook is positioned to become "a tech accessory for fashionistas around the globe." I love Vivienne's signature design that combines oriental mystique with modern femininity.

Falling Letters

This group of images was created by a young artist Marina Camargo from Brasil. They are not usually the type of images that I instantly fall in love with, but I'm very much attracted to the tender feeling of emptiness and sadness that they had brought up in me.

Levi's Packaging Design

I love these Levi's carrier bags and gift wrapping. The design is sleek, simple and clean, yet still very eye-catching. The use of raw materials creates a handcrafted feel. The black-and-white imageries and lettering, on the other hand, are very contemporary.
This packaging is designed by Checkland Kindleysides.

Jewelry Tree designed by Louise Christ

This sculptural jewelry tree could have been a perfect holiday gift if I had found it before Christmas or New Year. The elegant organic shape with the reflective finish - in polished aluminum or black chrome, make this functional piece a beautiful contemporary artwork. It is designed by Louise Christ for Denmark design maker Menu, and has won the 2008 Red Dot Design Award.
