    One Thousand Posts and Stuff…

    16th September

    Dearest readers, this post is part self-indulgent, part a little thank-you for hanging out with us for One Thousand posts. Hooray! I seriously cannot believe I’ve hit the “publish button” 1000 times. So much has happened since the beginning of Yellowtrace, both personally and work-wise. The last three or so years have been the scariest and by far the awesomest in my life. And things are about to get even more exciting…



    Daft Punk at Lautner’s Sheats Goldstein Residence in LA.

    23rd May

    I realise that Yellowtrace is not a music blog, so we shall leave Daft Punk’s brand new album “Random Access Memories” alone, while I draw your attention to something else. I’m talking about their recent slick photo shoot set in a famous modernist house in Los Angeles – Sheats Goldstein Residence, designed by celebrated American modernist architect John Lautner…



    Winter Illuminations at Nabana no Sato, Japan… And it’s time for a little break!

    21st December

    …And so I leave you with these stunning images of the mesmerising light tunnel in Japan called ‘Winter Illuminations’. This event takes place each year at Nabana no Sato, a botanical garden on the island of Nagashima in Kuwana. This light show uses millions of sparkling LEDs, and it runs from early November through to end of March. Isn’t it just incredible? I thought it was the most fitting way to mark this silly season, and wish you a sparkling New Year and Extremely Happy Holidays…

    “Interior branding” or “branded environments” is a term which has been getting a fair bit of traction in the recent years. This is not at all surprising – in today’s day and age with such incredibly fierce competition in the marketplace, every business ought to be putting their best foot forward in every aspect of what they do – from online presence, graphic identity and physical spaces, to packaging, staff attire, soundtracks and menus (where appropriate) etc. Interiors are almost always one of the biggest investments a business can make, so it is all the more crucial to get these spaces right – when done correctly, branded environments extend the experience of brands, and in turn make them more “tangible”…

    Ciao for Now… Oh and Some News!

    16th December

    Once again we reach the day when it’s time to pack up for the year, take a bow (and a little break), and also thank you – my wonderful readers – for your amazing support during 2011. Not only has this site grown so much this year, I feel like I have done a lot of growing (up) myself, especially having taken that scary and exciting Leap of Faith back in June… Wowee! 2011 has been such an amazing ride for yellowtrace and for me personally. And how about you – was it a good year for you too? Do share, I’d really love to know.

    Before I sign off, I wanted to tell you about what’s happening in the next few weeks and also share some news. For those of you who will be online during the next two weeks, I have …
