For most designers and artists there is a balance between limitless possibility and grounding reality/ constrictions. While I think most people dream of a life with no boundaries, in the end, we are often overwhelmed when we find ourselves in situations that actually seem completely limitless. So, for me, when I find myself in those situations, I start to regroup and look for inspiration. This week I'm working in NY on a project and found myself completely stressed by the idea that I was working from scratch on a project that could turn out to be really huge for me. That is, if I make it great. So, I was looking through design books, photography magazines and blogs to get excited and find direction and a "voice". Towards the end of my search I procrastinated a little by looking at some photos I recently took and needed to organize when I stumbled upon some photos I took at the Chicago Lincoln Park Conservatory. The textures, colors and patterns of nature completely inspired me to look at the project with new eyes….
Here are a few to inspire:
