There is so much inspiration in the world, it’s funny how you can miss it if you’re too busy with life.
For example, I was walking outside enjoying the wonderful weather we’re having for July, and I noticed an interesting pattern on glass by the front door of someone’s home. The pattern had a retro vibe feel to me, and it gave me today’s inspiration.
I was drawn to the shape because it screamed “I’m retro” at me. So, I decided to put the pattern into today’s design.
Since the time period during the 1940s was mute – mostly dark muted colors with no punch of color, I chose a color palate of blue-grayish, light tan and white. To break up the retro feel, I used a script font called “Flemish Script” instead of one like Futura or Bodoni to create a juxtaposition within the design itself.
Okay, here it is.
Wait! I almost forgot that I added an image in the header of my blog. I was tired to seeing an empty white space at the top of the blog above the title that I decided it needed some color. So, I took thumbnails from some of the cards that I have already designed and showed the text “Thank You” clearly in view and used them in the header. On a side note: The image header may change again at some point. Keep reading my blog to find out when and what I put up there.
Let me know what you think.
