After I left work this evening, I was contemplating not designing anything when I got home. The day was pretty hectic and I was really tired. However, once I was home, I realized that my Design a Day exercise has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the day. There isn't any pressure to come up with something the client likes - I can do whatever I want. Some days I'm really happy with my design, other days not-so-much...and that's okay. This design was inspired by some fashion photography I found on Ffffound.com of models interacting with typography. Anyone who knows me at all is aware of my slight typography obsession, so anything interacting with typography gets me excited. I'm not completely sure where (or more importantly why) I came up with today's quote, it just popped into my head.
Hope you enjoy!
This morning I ran across the website of Baron & Baron, Inc., a NY-based design firm who focuses on the fashion industry. I've always had a soft spot for the world of fashion. I drool (usually while no one is watching) over the high contrast photos of rake-thin models in couture, the understated logos of designers such as Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana, and the ridiculously large, typographical editorial layouts.
I think Baron & Baron is my new dream place to work. (...plus they have one of the best Flash intros I have ever seen)
