Mia Widlake of Studio Number 19 is ticking the boxes of those that favour a minimal & monochromatic approach to design. Making beautifully simple products with strong graphic touches, Studio Number 19 is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Lighting, ceramics and textiles form the core of Mia’s work, along with styling and collaborative ventures. Mia reflects that she is the happiest person in the world when she is designing or making something.

love local – aLoveSupreme

Who loves good stationery? I do! A fresh discovery for me is aLoveSupreme – an exciting new adventure in creative stationery which was just launched at Design Indaba. My friend Lisa bought a few of their items and I just knew I had to let you in on it too. They’re just what we needed – a graphic design consultancy making intelligent, creative illustrations with a sneaky sense of humour. I love the bright pops of colour over the stylised line drawings. Brilliant.
