My name is Paola Tartaglino, I’m a contemporary art historian by day and blogger by night.
This post is also available in: IT (IT)
We Make A Pair is the blog where I share my finding since September 2013: I like to look for new, beautiful and affordable things, design objects created by young people in Italy and around the world. I do it because I believe that beauty can improve our lives and that design should be for everyone. Moreover I like to amaze people and make them smile.
In the rest of the time I share with my boyfriend’s the passion for cooking, for travelling (we write together on Carapau Costante) and taekwondo, which was recently added to the list of things that we find the time to do, we don’t know how.
Every day I try to make a difference in my small way, choosing the bicycle to move around the city.
After the first few months spent experimenting, today We Make A Pair is a blog mainly dedicated to design and handmade, but also to graphics, illustration and publishing.
We Make A Pair is the title of a song by Math and Physics Club, but also represents my vision: we make a pair, me and my reader, as I and the designer I’m writing about. Sharing and collaboration are the key elements of the blog editorial development, because they give meaning to everything I do.
If you have an exciting project and you want to tell me about it, if you think we could work together, if you just like my blog or if you have suggestions: write to me via the contact form or directly to wemakeapair [at] gmail [dot] com
