Long before the internet...
There were posters in every school to show you a glimpse of the world. My husband's friend was a teacher for many years and every time the school decided to trash their posters, he rescued them. He has a collection of around 500 posters now and he gave us some the other day. I thought I'd share them with you.
This one has a twist.
I decided to challenge myself with 2 rules for this redesign:
I always want to redesign ebook covers.
I can't help but scroll through Lousy Book Covers and dream up how I would design all the book covers differently. There's so much potential there for improvement! Sometimes, I can't help but try my hand at redesigning them. I love following inspiration and creating designs I never imagined. Watch my design process below and see my latest ebook cover redesign.
Why not be extra?
When I was younger, I saw a movie where there was a fancy looking house and that house had a birdhouse in its yard that was a mini version of the fancy house (American Beauty? I cant remember...). That just stuck with me. I really liked the idea of it. So, last winter when the roof blew off of our little birdhouse, I thought, why not make a birdhouse to match our cute Bavarian home?
It didn't turn out perfect. There are changes I want to make to it next summer. But, for now, it's good enough. 😉
You can watch how I made it below and see the final birdhouse at the end.
