Urbis is an admirer of Alana Broadhead, the curator of New Zealand design blog Fancy, creative strategist and designer for Foundry (limited edition tote bags and prints).

In the latest issue, we take a peek into her lovely Mount Maunganui home - an artfully arranged collection of objects, artworks, framed typography and inspirational ephemera.

For the full article on Fancy’s Alana Broadhead pick up a copy of Urbis issue #67, available in bookstores in supermarkets.
