‘HERE FOLLOWS THE PERSONAL SCRAPBOOK OF A 31 YEAR OLD PARIS BORN IRISHMAN LIVING IN AMSTERDAM. A PHOTOGRAPHY ENTHUSIAST, CYCLING AFICIONADO, ARCHITECTURE, DESIGN AND STYLE JUNKY.’
Where are you from? I hold an Irish Passport, but I was born in Paris. Now I find my self living in Amsterdam and love it here.
What do you do? I am a Business Analyst in the Financial Services/IT industry. However, while I was in college I worked in menswear so I still have a strong interest in that world.
Describe your tumblr? It’s just a scrapbook of all the stuff that interests me on the internet – beautiful places, nice clothes, attractive ladies, well crafted time-pieces, bicycles, architecture, food, drink and so on. It never started out as something to share with others. Nowadays I tend to reblog from other tumblrs in a curating kind of way… if that doesn’t sound too pretentious. I like to share the other tumblrs I like with the people who read mine.
When did you first start using tumblr? I was following some folks on there, like howtotalktogirlsatparties, nickelcobalt and jesuisperdu for a few months when I decided to start my own in August 2009. It’s interesting to see how my tastes have evolved and been influenced by my age and the other tumblrs I follow.
What’s your favourite tumblr? Too many to mention all of them so I will pick out a few: everythingyouaskme, mrharristweed, anfeargorm, laragosta, mostexrent, stoneleighgallery and lifeonsundays.
Things, organised neatly. Pleasing the OCD-sufferer within us all.
Where are you from? Dayton, OH and I currently live and go to school in Indianapolis, IN.
What do you do? I am an undergraduate student at Herron School of Art & Design.
Describe your tumblr… Things Organized Neatly is a photo design blog that publishes images of objects arranged neatly. Whether organized by size, colour, or just laid out at right angles, the objects can be viewed as a temporary art installation. “Always be knolling.” — Tom Sachs
How often do you blog? Most days I’m on tumblr for at least an hour. It’s addictive!
What’s your favourite tumblr? There are so many… midnight-marauders, bootoo, humanly. I like when nowserving does colour themes, like twenty posts in a row will feature blue for example. Also kimjongillookingatthings is always good for a laugh.
The epitome of all that is beautiful and girly, from lingerie-designer and artist, Hannah Metz.
Where are you from? Originally from Canada, presently living in Brooklyn, NY.
What do you do? I co-produce a small lingerie line called The Loved One and co-own a vintage shop of the same name in Pasadena, California.
Describe your tumblr… A collection of photos, film stills and paintings that I find inspiring.
How often do you blog? Whenever something pops up that I love. I like to collect posts in my “likes” until I have a group of three that fit neatly together then I’ll post them all at once.
What’s your favourite tumblr? forestgraves.
‘If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take that reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.’
Where are you from? Portland Oregon.
What do you do? I am a designer and photographer.
Why did you choose tumblr rather than a blog? Tumblr allows people to share images very easily and also has a great built in social network.
How often do you update? Once a day.
What’s your favourite tumblr? I like thingsorganizedneatly and mytasteinwomen.
A collection of amusing photographs, midday babes, fashion features and great mixtapes… What more could you want?
Where are you from? Toronto, Canada.
What do you do? Web and Graphic design.
Describe your tumblr… It’s kind of all over the place but the heart of it would probably be: Interesting design work, cute girls and great music.
Why did you choose tumblr rather than a blog? The long answer is that I had a few wordpress blogs before but once I tried tumblr it was simple to customise and the people that were on there were pretty cool. The short answer was because hipsterrunnoff made one.
What’s your favourite tumblr? I would probably say kleinmania just because he and I have the same sense of humour and his blog always makes me laugh.
And we must mention Andrew Stichbury, i-D’s go-to guy for themes. Having recently launched our very own tumblr (pictured), we found the theme of our dreams thanks to this talented young NZ-native.
