As a designer I am constantly collecting things I find inspiring, interesting, intriguing, and fascinating. This serves as a point where I can document as share these pieces with others who may enjoy them as well. Please also visit my portfolio in the above links.
To fill with the urge or ability to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative. ORIGIN: Latin inspirare ‘breathe or blow into,’ from in- ‘into’ + spirare ‘breathe.’ The word was originally used of a divine or supernatural being, in the sense [impart a truth or idea to someone.]
Norwegian designer Tom Emil Olsen, identity work for Jacu Coffee Roastery.
The Jacu bird lives in South America and is known for something quite extraordinary; It flies from coffee plantation to coffee plantation and picks and eats the tastiest coffee cherries. The fruit makes its way through the bird’s digestive system, and the seeds of the fruit - coffee beans - come out perfectly processed. These coffee beans are among the most exclusive in the world. This story has inspired us, and the bird has lent its name to the new micro-roastery in Ålesund, Norway.
