In preparation for our website (which should finally be up and running next month!), I’ve been scoping out display images for inspiration. I’m preparing to photograph our own display of our first product line, which will hopefully offer a twist to the typical online shop experience.
I came across these great vintage shots of supermarkets through my search. I totally get lost in these images, particularly in the signage and the pastels.

Today Pantone announced Tangerine Tango, a vivacious, enticing hue, as the color of the year for 2012. I happened to pick up our hand printed hang tags yesterday, which’ll be used for our first product line. Below is a sneak peek of one of the tags. I see some similarities…
FL4 Projects participates in its second event of the season, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, Saturday, December 17th (5pm-1am) at 149 Kent Ave in Williamsburg.

An impromptu product shot from inside the studio during the breakdown of a brief art installation.
We have been undergoing some renovations here at FL4 to make the studio better organized and more pleasant to work in. We just acquired two beautiful Karl Blossfeldt prints to hang on the walls. I love Blossfeldt’s prints because they evoke so many visual parallels. This bold leaf immediately reminded me of Matisse’s cutouts.
