I hoard a lot of images that catch my eye, some on paper, but mostly on my laptop. It really helps to look and absorb first…but I’m a bit guilty of looking and collecting for ages, to avoid actually getting started on my own ideas!!!
This is a screen shot of my colour inspiration folder, it goes on further, but this is the gist of it. There are various colour wheels etc, colour combinations i like, that people have posted on ‘Colour lovers.com’ in the palette area
Other jpegs are colour combinations I have experimented with on the Kuler website
I have a folder full of poster designs I like (again, there’s more!)
… also here’s a folder of screen shots of web designs which inspire me.
And I collect various extras that interest me such as bits of advertising
Or the Orla Kielly designs that I have posted in the ‘Bits and Bobs’ section of this blog.
The Eventful Tavistock card was given to me by a local printer, its not obvious from the photo, but the card is very nice quality.
