This is Leah, checking in today with a bit of inspiration - have you ever taken a bit of inspiration from something online and applied it to a layout or project? I put together a layout for today's post using a photo from instagram as inspiration for the project!
One of my favorite instagrammers to see posts from is a Los Angeles, California based photographer named bonnie tsang. I find her clean, crisp, and uncluttered photos so inspiring.
I loved this image that she shared of a coffee shop that she visited one day - the clean black and white, the saying on the wall, and the font, all served as inspiration for this layout featuring a peek into my studio space work this past Saturday. (You can check out her instagram account here.)
The saying on the wall became my title - and I even chose an alphabet that was similar.
And by the way, did you notice that I included a bunch of new items that were introduced at CHA Winter 2015?
Have you used anything from social media to inspire any part of a layout or project lately? I've always made it a personal goal to use the inspiration around me, instead of just stockpiling it and sort of looking on wistfully. If I'm actively using it to inspire me, it becomes something positive in my life to move me to do good things!
