what we are loving: katie, art director

When the Smack Bang gang aren’t head down bottoms up in pixels and emails, we love keeping abreast of what’s going on around the interwebs; and the world at large. 

So after much demand, we’ll be sneaking you under the cover of our screens over the next few weeks to reveal what different members of our taste-making team are reading, watching, coveting, eating and working on….

Enjoy and please feel free to share your own in the comments.

  1. A movie that’s been on my hitlist for a while now is I, Tonya. I love true stories, and one featuring our very own Margot Robbie.. Need I say more?
  2. At the moment I’m working on a super cool new coffee brand. I’m loving this one because they are open to challenging the market aesthetic (which is an absolute dream). After a personal hiatus from coffee, I’m ready to drink a cup or two when these guys are open!
  3. I’ve been on the search for a classic long-lasting coat. This one has caught my eye. I’m also in desperate need of a wettie update. This steamer from Patagonia is top of my list.
  4. I’m all about making my home ‘homely’ with little things that don’t add clutter, but add personality. I’m due for a candle top up so I’ve got my eye on this one and I’d love to peruse this on the weekend, adding it to my stack which includes my all time fave, Surf Shacks.
  5. I’ve been trying to track down a new soup recipe to beat the winter chill! This one by Jamie Oliver looks like a delicious take on the classic pumpkin soup.
  6. Word on the street is yellow is the new pink. This article has caught my attention recently – maybe clients will start requesting moodboards filled with sunshine yellow over pastel pink now?
  7. With an upcoming trip booked to the States, my mind has been consumed by all things US. I’ve found this is getting my taste buds excited, and I’ve been getting ready to blend into those NY streets by flicking through this (ok, maybe not but how great are some of these outfits!)
  8. Whenever I’m in the need for some fresh inspo or just to get in touch with what’s going on in the design world, I tend to head towards this, this and this.

  1. Nice to read a personable blog on a design website. Like this and loved I, Tonya too!
