I recently rediscovered the work of the amazing Louise Fili. I am so inspired by her work. It is absolutely gorgeous in it's simplicity without sacrificing attention to every detail. I love the fact that she purposefully chose to concentrate on restaurant and food packing in order to combine the two things she loved: food and design. I definitely have her books series on my holiday wish list as well.
Check out this Design Sponge sneak peak into her lovely studio (and get a load of her collection of vintage ephemera... it's awesome). In addition, this recent interview she did with Design Sponge is wonderful.
