Cool Find!

I have encountered many poster pieces that have geometric shapes in them and shapes like these give the design more edge. However, this semester, I had come across this poster and could not stop marveling over it. I love it when design has a 3-dimensional illusion to it. It gives the piece more life to it.

PINTEREST

You can never go wrong with pinterest. This sight is very helpful when creating mood boards or you’re just simply looking for some inspiration for your work. I highly recommend creating account if you do not have one already! Many of my projects derive from content I find here on this site.

Repetition

These were a couple of the photos that did not make the final cut to my Personal Aesthetic Project. I had removed these photos from the collection because it conflicted with my negative space vision. This applies more to repetition, so it would have only ruin the composition of the whole project.

Lighting is Key

I admire the lighting to headshots similar to the one below. It gives a more defined look into the model’s features and it just enhances their beauty. I tried to achieve a composition similar to this just to see what it would be like. The process was definitely difficult because it requires a lot of trial and error to obtain the look you want to capture. 

Herbert Bayer: Newspaper Stand

During our Graphic Design History Essay assignment, I came across this piece by Herbert Bayer. This piece caught my attention because of its dimensionality and its simplicity. This influenced my aesthetic, because I had realized how much I admire simple designs and compositions.

Logo Designs

Coming up with a logo design also takes a bit time, because you want to make sure you communicate the company’s motto carefully. Logospire is a simple website which showcases a variety of logos created by designers. 

COLORS!

Colors play an important role when it comes to designing. Sometimes it is also difficult to pair colors so that they would complement each other. Design Seeds has a whole lot of collections of color palettes you can look through for inspiration.
