Goodbye, Fearless Intern Corinna Loo!

photo

Thankfully, we didn’t trick fearless intern Miss Corinna Nicole Loo into thinking that the photo above we took of her, hard at work in the B/D offices, was for anything other than public consumption. (Apologies on tricking you for your ‘goodbye post’, Greg.) And yet, the smiles are all real my friends! Corinna can attest to the fact that slaving away night and day for the greater good of Beautiful/Decay is quite fun! During her stay here, she’s done some great design work, blog posts (you can view her ouevre, as ze French say, here), humorous anecdotes about her two kitties (wearing sombreros) and of course titillating data entry….well, maybe that wasn’t so titillating for her, but, nonetheless! Thank you for all your hard work and contributions to the B/D team, we know you will have a great impact both at UCLA and the design world….so, the start of another school year will wrest you from our firmly clenched claws, Miss Loo, but of course we hope you will return to us again soon. Some of Corinna’s personal work after the jump!

Le Goff & Gabarra

Le Goff and Gabarra

Le Goff & Gabarra is a design agency based in Paris. Their work demonstrates an understanding of bold colors and strong typography. I’m partial to their physical typographic works, especially their work for 6 scope. That 6 made out of water looks pleasantly scientific (check that one out after the jump). Good job to you Le Goff & Gabarra, keep ‘em comin’!

eyesclosedOpposite to “normal” portraits, Benjamin Nadjib took pictures of people with their eyes closed. Normally the focus is on the eyes, but instead the face itself has the most attention. Well played. Check out the gallery HERE.
