Something colorfully quirky for your weekend… I love coming across clever creative gems like the Carmichael Collective. I like a little alliteration, also…! There’s not so much information on their website, but I can tell you the collective is “an ongoing project from Carmichael Lynch, a creative company based in Minneapolis, MN. Everything you see on the site is just creativity for creativity’s sake. If you like it, share it.” I like it, so I am!

And if you want to see more, they ask you to follow them. “Or, don’t. It’s totally 
up to you. After all, art is in the eye of the beholder.” Creative pragmatists! Who would’ve thunk it?

So let me share a few of their creative bits ‘n’ bobs…

There’s more in the brilliant Urban Plant Tag series:

The clever people at the Carmichael Collective are also the ones responsible for the wonderful Piñata Anatomy that has been popping up all over the inter-web lately:

And, then there’s the slightly eccentric and enchanting Bug Memorials:

When you check out the Carmichael Lynch purpose (or mission statement, for you HR types!), they say, “Our enemy is complacency, mediocrity, the conventional. We rally against the ordinary and hold sacred the power of the new: to transform, to instigate, to delight, to create devotion.” I may have become a disciple…

If you’d like to learn more about the Carmichael Collective or if you’d like to join their movement, head over to their site here. I’m sure there’ll be some more kooky creative work coming soon…
