Design Blocks

I’m back…with inspiration!

Posted on: January 14, 2011

I wanted to let apologize for such a long hiatus since my last regular postings. I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season and is off to a great new year! I look forward to regularly sharing design happenings with you through this blog. Thanks for hanging in there and please keep coming back.

I would like to share with you the blog  The Craft Begins, particularly the section on inspiration boards! We are always trying to teach students how to look past the obvious and move into more conceptual thinking and imagery. As you can imagine this can be very difficult so I particularly love when we come across sites that have great examples of inspiration and mood boards. I hope you take some time to view the boards and look at all of the colors and textures that are occurring in each one. I would actually like to encourage you all to begin to create your own. You can do this by creating folders on your computer where you save images or as you go through magazines feel free to cut out pictures and save them and create collages on paper or in a journal! You can even make notes about the image reminding you why you like the image, is it the texture, lighting, color, mood, etc that is being depicted?  Enjoy!
