Recall my interest for highlighting Interior photographers? It is finally time for the second interior photography interview. It has been one I have been longing to post for a while now! The photographer I am talking about is Jill Tate. She is based in North East of England but works throughout UK as a freelance architectural photographer.
Do you remeber the Barley Mow office by TILT? Those images are all captured by this lovely photographer. In fact it was these images that captured my interest as she showed a straight to the point attitude and care for details. There is no wonder why she has had clients like TILT, DE Magazine and Polyfloor amongst some.
I am delighted that Jill wanted to participate in this interview not only because she has an attitude that is appealing to us, but also due to her immense educational background and the care she portrays in her work. Enough said…enjoy the photos and let’s just move down to read her wise and inspirational story and words.
“Photographing architecture and interiors was a natural progression, a scaled up version of my fascination with composition and representing the three dimensional world in two dimensions.” -Jill Tate
Barcelona based graphic designer Coni, or Costanza is a woman who introduced me to her work a couple of weeks ago. She had just launched her new career as a business owner of her own studio Conilab which at the moment focuses on producing handmade silkscreen posters. Knowing how much gutt it takes for someone to take the leap of faith of venturing on their own, made me want to help her a bit along the way by showing some of my favourite pieces she has in her shop.
“[...] I love typography, signs, word games, popular sayings and you will find a little bit of all these things on my work.” – Coni
“Do what you love”! “Turn the page”! All very motivational and uplifting quotes that decorates her posters! I also like the ingenious collection of the “If you want to be-be”. Yep, they are right up my alley. See below what she tells us about her inspiration and style…
Where do you find inspiration to your art?
I don’t think I have a “style” because I’m on a searching process; experimenting. I can tell you I love typography, signs, word games, popular sayings and you will find a little bit of all these things in my work.
How would you define your style?
Anything can inspire me. A song, a book, visiting an exhibition, watching a movie, walking on the beach, talking to someone… Also some facts of my personal life, such as the birth of my youngest niece which inspired me to do “we are a team
“. Once I have an idea the process starts: hand sketches, notes, and then I work on the concept on my computer and when I “see it”, begins the serigraphy-process.
Thank you Coni for reaching out to us and for inspiring us.
Do you want to see more of Coni’s work? In that case take a look at her Etsy shop.

I am taking a week off from the blog to work on some assignments and projects that are due. I will also squeeze in some relaxation time and work on some up and coming blog content that I am excited about.
Wish you a creative week and I will be back on Monday!

I am finding this ‘Sunday book searching’ ritual really educational. Not only is it inspiring me for layouts; but also the titles educates me. They basically inspire me to look in to different aspects of design or remind me of what I should research more of.
Well Sundays, ain’t fully about work, it is about relaxation also…hence I wouldn’t mind having this pile of books on that Jardan coffee table and some ‘me’ time.
Friday…and I am sad to say, all I am thinking about today is work and inspiration. Instead of sitting at my kitchen table -temporary office space- I would much rather sit among other creatives and brainstorm. I am especially thinking of the creatives of the Barcelona based INTSIGHT studio. They have done some really cool interior spaces that I have shown here on the blog before. They also have done this office space shown in this post for B,14. So Intsight will you have me over?

is a Swedish word for the concept of comfort and relaxation. It has a different meaning to each Swede. It might involve the luxury of a glass of wine, candy, great food, company of your loved once, indulging in a book….. Well the imagination for what Fredagsmys
means is endless and is all about ‘a feeling’.
