Designspiration: Type Posters

The Student ADDY deadline is fast approaching and I've been hard at it researching inspiration to create more work to possibly enter. It's all up in the air right now as far as what I want to enter from the work I've already finished, so I want to make sure I have a really good variety to choose from. Right now my focus is of course my one true love in graphic design....typography posters! On my quest for 'designspiration' I came across some amazing pieces that I just had to share with you.

My Identity

As a part of my BFA Senior Project I created an identity for myself including a website (, stationary, business cards, and coffee cup sleeves that will hopefully be printed and slipped on cups of coffee for my guests at our BFA Senior Show. The time and place of the show is TBA but I'll post it as soon as I find out. For now, here's what I have of my identity pieces.

Jane Aldridge 'Sea of Shoes'

I've become completely obsessed with Jane Aldridge's blog 'Sea of Shoes.' She lives the most glamorous lifestyle of any teenager I've ever seen and shares her experiences on her blog. Every piece of clothing she wears makes me fall in love with fashion more every day. Fashion has always been a love of mine. From the time I turned 13 I began making sketches and setting up a mock portfolio to 'present' to my 'clients.' I also started to sketch interior designs and industrial designs. Then I got really into publication layout and that's when my sketches became my main elements for graphic design. So I guess it's fair to say I'm just simply in love with design.

Anyway, Sea of Shoes is beyond wonderful. I'm quite obsessed to tell you the truth. Recently, Jane returned from her debutant ball in Paris where she was fitted to wear a Chanel gown for the night and tour Coco Chanel's apartment. Talk about a fairy tale! Here are some photos of her gown on the runway, her wearing it at the ball, and then a few from her blog which you can check out at Sea of Shoes.

Unforgivable by Ashlee Giglia

On of the most inspirational things to me as a designer is beautiful photography. This photo was taken by my sister Ashlee Giglia. It's one of my favorites - visually stunning and so beautiful.
