Inspiration Tuesday

I have been really inspired lately—by food, movies, design…it’s hard to corral it into one place that makes sense. Since this is my first post, I’ll show you a little inspiration of one of my most favorite things: design. Design inspires me via colors, patterns and typography, and thanks to the internet, there is no shortage of great design to check out.



I’m totally in love with the letterpressed background and type in this business card! I love the teal + orange combo and all of the white space the design allows.



Logo design is one area that I’ve had the least practice in, but seeing this panel of prospective logos makes me happy! It’s funny how many designs you can make out of just a few words.



I love the rainbow effect of this print, not to mention the wisdom its words hold. I also love that the designer chose to use colors other than your run-of-the-mill ROYGBIV combo.



Everything about this invite makes me swoon. Yellow! Grey! Banners! Scripts! It’s simply gorgeous.



And last but not least, a few throwback product labels. The oranges, reds and teals compliment each other nicely, and I love the typography and distressed look.

Hope some of these have inspired you!
