It’s been way too long since I’ve taken the time to browse a little visual inspiration and pile it together into a moodboard. Although it tends to land at the bottom of my to-do list, it is probably one of my favourite ways to jump start the creative process. Here are all the pre-spring vibes that have me looking forward to longer days and brighter tones.
The shop has been updated this week with a few new prints! These three designs are all digitally printed on recycled and acid-free papers. Pin one up in your workspace or add it to a gallery wall. They are clean, simple and designed to mix well with others.
If you happen to pick one up, be sure to share it with us on Instagram using #sundaydesignstudiogoods!
As sad as it is to see summer go, there is something about September that is exciting. Maybe it’s residual ‘first day of school’ excitement from the early years, or maybe it’s knowing that next comes holiday season. Either way, the air feels different. Something about it is cozier. Here are the fall vibes we’re feeling this month…
It’s been a busy summer. I was lucky enough to get a little time away to soak in some family time and a little vitamin D. This week it’s back reality and to some really exciting projects. Stay tuned for our online shop opening this fall as well as some local retail pop-ups in the next couple months. Can’t wait to share all the details!
Whether it’s an interior space or a branding concept, my process always starts with some moodboarding. I think that by collecting a cohesive set of inspirational images is the best way to narrow your focus and really create a strong persona for the project. These days, especially online, there are so many amazing images flying at us at all times, and it is easy to get sidetracked during the design process. My moodboards get printed out, pinned up (on a real life pinboard) and sit within eyesight throughout the project to help keep the work pinpointed on the end goal. I also find them useful as a talking point with clients. We all learn and communicate in different ways, so the more tools available to fuel a great design conversation or critique, the better.
Here is one example from the archives. A look we created for a retail shop a couple years ago. It evolved greatly from this point, but this is where we started and it provided a great jumping off and touchpoint for everyone involved.
