Graphic Design Inspiration #4

I’ve always had a great affinity for anything vintage, distressed, aged, and plain ol’ beaten’ down lookin’. In thinking about possible sources of inspiration for this, two things come to mind: the television shows ‘Sandford and San’ and ‘Barney Miller.”

With the former, I just loved that red pickup truck and the faded white lettering on the door panels.

With the latter, the entire set seemed to take its colouring from a dusty old attic. Of course, the most prominent vintage item on Barney Miller was Sergeant Wojciehowicz’ baseball that sat on his desk.

Graphic Design Inspiration #2

Every graphic designer has a style they naturally feel comfortable with. For me, give me a solid colour and a nice sans-serif font, and that is all I need. Thinking about this, I wonder how much growing up in Toronto played a role: Subway stop after subway stop, each station imprinting on my young mind the value of a solid colour and a nice sans-serif font.
