Hovie's Italy Trip Inspiring

Design Hovie Studios' Creative Director Hovie Hawk's recent trip to Italy was both inspiring and productive. Hovie was able to begin work on two new projects for clients in Venice, meet with our strategic alliance partner Qwentes Italia in Milan, and gain valuable inspiration from the designs and cities of Venice and Milan. Hovie plans to incorporate the various influences from the trip in the Studios' work for 2012. The photo above was taken by Hovie in Venice.

Colors 2012 from Milan

Just returned from Milan. As always I was inspired. One thing that jumped out to me while soaking in the environments was the consistent color pallet seen across many designers' window displays. Camel, grey, red/orange and black were everywhere. Love the rich tones. See more on our Facebook page.
