Katie Daisy, were you destined to draw pretty flowers and make prints about drinking in the sunshine with a name like that? Or did you brand yourself with that name, so that everything you live and breathe is colour, pattern and all things delightful?

Breakfast with Ita

Here at Boheem we like a bit of Girl Power.

Bright and early this morning Ann and I and an army of 1000+ women gathered to hear stories, thoughts and inspirations from Ita Buttrose. We were invited along by Paula Parsons from Bright Wealth - a new client of ours (herself an inspiring business woman!)

Ita spoke about her experience being an ambitious, working mother in the publishing industry during the 1970's. She has a passion for women's culture and issues which continue to face women in the workforce. She spoke of the importance of empowering women to think differently about themselves and their roles in Australian society.

Ita was eloquent, down-to-earth and definitely inspiring. The advice I took away from this morning was - 'Tough times never last, but tough people always do.'

Sweeping Beauty

This is so beautiful, I just had to share it. Calligraffiti artist, Niels Shoe Meulman, takes to the street with a mere broom, bucket of water and pure talent. Looove it!

Roads & Maritime Services

Perhaps one of our proudest achievements to date (hard to say really, it's hard to compare highlights!) is that we have been selected to be on the design panel for the Roads & Maritime Services – previously RTA NSW – for a five year appointment. We're really looking forward to working with the team at RMS, we feel sure that there'll be wonderful challenges ahead. I want to do a little dance – to the tune of 'We got Annie'...

Amy and Dave's wedding invitations

Last weekend I was a privileged guest at the most beautiful wedding. I thought I'd share the invitations with you, which I designed for my dear friends Amy and Dave. Next up I'm planning a poster range featuring this hand-drawn type. Keep an eye out at the Boheem shop – they'll be launching in just a month or two.
