Some people are just amazingly talented, Loni Parker of Adore Home Magazine fame is definitely one of those people (and she's super nice to boot!). Lovely Wedding Magazine is Loni's new baby and it is pure eye candy. I'm many (many) years off marriage but I still can't help but drool over wedding blogs and magazines so it's nice to see a a great quality wedding magazine that is Australian-based. It's definitely worth a look and you'll also see a couple of Inky Co. favourites pop up like our yellow organza ribbon card, kraft gift tags and brown string.

//Before I start the real post, I'm back to blogging again (hopefully a bit more regularly) after a crazy couple of weeks getting ready for trade fairs and new range releases. Sorry about all the silence, hopefully there are still some of you out there. If so, hello! // So, I've decided that it wouldn't be too bad working at Google, something you've all probably worked out years ago. Here are some pictures of the newest Google office, Super HQ, in Convent Garden, London.
One of three London-based Google offices, this very British looking HQ is situated on level 8 of the Central Saint Giles Tower. Google's eccentric offices are well documented (and lusted after) and this London office, like it's two siblings the industrial chic office and the space-age white box office, has lived up to and surpassed Google office standards. The Super HQ's interior, like the other two London offices, has been designed by Penson Architects but with a distinctly cozy feel, complete with wood paneling, pillowed leather upholstery and floral fabrics.
This massive 160,000-square-foot office space has been cleverly divided up into distinct areas; the "granny flat" style cafe, a terrace allotment garden, meeting pods, gym and dance studio. As principal Lee Penson puts it, "the Google stereotype is not in throwing money at it, it's about designing your heart out with a 'normalish budget'." Hmm maybe one day I can make the Inky Co. HQ look as great as this.

Inflated/Deflated is a project initiated by a trio out of Chicago. As they put it "the words written on our balloons range from humorous quotes to heartfelt feelings and memories. These words are marked on the surface of inflated balloons, and like that of one’s thoughts being released, so too is the air of the balloon. Deflated the once largely marked letters become small, expressive, and intricate forms." Check out all of their balloons here.
