Super Ordinary Life is a blog that seeks to encourage people to simply notice more. We want to reawaken a sense of constant wonder and ignite that “seeing with fresh eyes” sensation even in the most mundane moments of everyday life. We hope to do this by enabling ourselves and others to realise that beauty, inspiration and good design exists everywhere and the simple act of just noticing more can enrich our daily lives.
Super Ordinary Life is culmination of the following facets:
Ways To See There are so many ways to look at the mundane world around us. Exploring various perspectives taken from designers, artists, writers and more, we find new ways to see and interpret the world around us.
Noticing More: There are countless Super Ordinary sights that permeate our everyday lives. A multitude of often overlooked details that when noticed, quietly reveal much about the way we live. Every so often, we shine the spotlight on a different aspect of urban life.
Super Ordinary things are often anonymously designed, always ego-less, unpretentious and more often than not unbranded. They are things that we are so accustomed to that we take them for granted.
Super Ordinary lifestyle are snippets from our own private lives.
Super Ordinary play combines what we've learned from all the above in creative collaborations with brands and locations that share our vision. Here we create unique and interesting perspectives and discuss overlooked details within recognisable brands and experiences.
By sharing a growing visual archive of cross cultural objects, sights, experiences and theories, we hope to show that mindfulness and satisfaction that can stem from enhancing our appreciation of our everyday surroundings.
