April and I make no secret of the fact that we are always on the hunt for design inspiration. Whether it be an interesting magazine ad, quirky product packaging, or sweet wrapping paper, no web or print graphic element escapes our notice. It’s no surprise then, that Pinterest is a never-ending blackhole for us. As a source of font, color, and style inspiration it’s unparalleled, and also a dangerous way to spend several hours in pursuit of the right idea for our next button/flyer/poster/display/etc.
This is another one of my feature slide creations for my library’s homepage. The backdrop is just a screenshot of one of our library’s more attractive Pinterest boards, with a semi-opaque layer above it for some contrast. Although there’s no exact match for the Pinterest logo font, Pacifico is a decent runner-up. For the Photoshop file, email Veronica Arellano Douglas.
