perfectbound


from winnipeg, manitoba, help send a warm welcome to julie and kathryn as they start up their new blog, perfectbound today. (also check out their photostream, lovely images/ideas!)

they met in their first year of art school at university and realized they shared a love of design. as they started talking about their plans for the future, it became clear that they wanted to design, but not lose themselves in the process.

they've taken drawing, ceramics, photography, letterpress, printmaking, graphic and environmental design –all of which have lead to a shared aesthetic in design and in life.

their love of all design has propelled them to start this blog. finding and sharing good design is their way of "spreading the love". they said "it is an opportunity to introduce themselves to the design world outside of winnipeg and get to know the people behind the designs they love". they thought it would be a good idea to start the blog now, as they begin the second chapter in their design lives – perfectbound. in the near future they also hope to have an etsy shop with their own designs. (i'm sure i'll be blogging about that too)!
