some more inspo

Hey everyone.

It's April, I have to say I am so excited to be part of this great team. I have always loved challenge blogs, anytime I am in a creativity funk they are the best thing to get my mind spinning with ideas. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with, if you haven't already go check out the flickr group ~ the creative type . I am loving all the awesome work over there.


Now for my poster, I used this for my inspiration:

I love the look of this poster especially all that lovely type. Here is my take on it:



For this I went completely digital, I still love my paper crafting best but it's fun to mix things up a little bit. I took the picture of myself and cut out the background, then I did a gradual softening of the edges to help it blend into the poster background. Next I picked out my lovely type, I choose more "fun" fonts for most of this to reflect my personality. I hope this helps give a little inspo to everyone.


Also I stumbled upon this site today called ~ Ork Posters, they make awesome typographic posters of different cities. You have to check them out:



I hope everyone has a great weekend & remember to upload your projects no later than September 6th.



xo, April
