Designer Desktops: July 2011

July’s Designer Desktop is inspired by a quote from Coco Chanel (she was just full of wit and wisdom, no?) Designed by Allison and Craig Glancey of Strawberry Luna, the design reminds me of the opening of a French film from the 1970s.

Allison and Craig on their design:

Sometimes when you go looking for inspiration, you cannot find it in the usual places. In fact, we notice that inspiration often comes from surprising little corners of a day. While looking through more traditional design quotes, it was hard to find one that fit nicely. Reading through random quotations, we kept seeing gems from Coco Chanel. While she was certainly a designer, we tend to think of her work and legacy in the narrow terms of fashion only. Realistically, that’s unfair given Chanel’s extreme and indelible effect on design across multiple platforms in the modern era. Her quotes are lively, fresh, graphically interesting and as carefully composed as the objects she created. This quote in particular appealed to us for the stylish and visually crisp way of stating the importance of one’s self or one’s work being perfectly self-sufficient. And of the opportunity to create a man’s suit from mere stacked words? C’est parfait!
