Librarian Design Share

inspiration for library creatives



Remixing Old Designs

Last December I shared a sign I created for our reference desk advertising our library’s chat reference service and LibAnswers Knowledgebase. I love it when designs on our site get remixed and re-purposed. Erica DeFrain of Honey-Badger-Boolean fame switched up the sign’s layout, “fussed with the text,” and of course, changed colors to match her home institution. The result is below:

Ask us sign for the U of VTAwesome, Erica! If you’ve adapted any of the designs on our blog, let us know! We’d love to feature them here.

Kindle Inspiration

Kindle is hereThis submission is a great example of what we hoped Librarian Design Share could do. Here’s what Bohyun Kim from Florida International University Medical Library has to say about her new Kindle lending program advertisement:

This is a poster I created [using Photoshop] for my library’s new Kindle e-book reader lending program sponsored by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine/Southeast Atlantic Region Express Mobile Technology Project Award. The poster will be printed on a large glossy paper (36′ x 24′). This poster design has been inspired by the circulation desk signage of Saint Mary’s College of Maryland Library featured on Library Design Share back in December.

You can read more about Bohyun’s poster creation on the ACRL Tech Connect blog (which, if you’re not reading, you should definitely checkout!). If you’ve been inspired by any of our posts, we’d love to feature your adaptations.

For the Photoshop file of this poster, email Bohyun Kim.
