Paris vs New York by Vahram Muratyan.

French graphic designer and illustrator Vahram Muratyan has created a set of wonderful flat, minimalist illustrations for his blog and a new book titled Paris versus New York. The series is a comparison between two of the greatest cities in the world, and offers a unique look at the cultural and cosmetic differences between the two. Vahram started by originally posting illustrations such as baguette vs bagel or Eiffel tower vs Statue of liberty up on his blog parisvsnyc which became popular enough that he has released 3 books of the comparisons. The illustrations are also available as framed prints up to 28 by 36 inches in size.

The copy “Love Him Like You Love Yourself” makes a clear point when combined with imagery that plays off of the emotional connection pet owners have with their furry friends.

Paris in the Morning.

Paris is a city that everyone should visit at least once. Out of all the places I have been in Europe, Paris will always be at the top of my list. The short film below from emeric captures an early morning in Paris, with an overlay of what people might be thinking.

The film was shot on the new Panasonic GX7 with Panasonic 14-42mm, Olympus 9-18mm and 75mm lenses. Shot entirely hand held it shows the cameras solid image stabilization, as well as overall image quality. Besides showing off the camera, Emeric also shows off Paris in wonderful way.

Paris Kabbinet from Septembre.

A little over six months ago my wife and I made a very conscious choice to downsize my living space by moving from just under 2000 square feet of modern expanse into 1000 square feet of urban loft. I’m still getting use to the reduced footprint and the challenges that come with it. One thing I do know is, it requires a much more minimal lifestyle, and you use every inch of your space. There is no room for clutter, or things you don’t use. This is why I can appreciate the Kabbinet project from Septembre Architecture. This 85 square meter apartment (approximately 915 square feet) features smart built in furniture that functions as seating as well as storage.

The former manufacturing workshop in a Parisian alley uses the multifunctional wooden cabinetry to line the perimeter of the space opening up the central living area to create a sense of larger volume. High end finishes and a simple black and white color pallet help make the small space feel larger and exaggerate the feeling of luxury living in a small footprint.
