17 May CW Three – Time Machine
Well, it’s taken a year, but I’m back at it. Restarting my Creative Workshop Challenge on number 3, “Time Machine”. I don’t know why I got hung up on this one, but I did. I recently picked up a couple books that has resparked my desire to push forward with graphic design. The first was a book called “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” which so far seems to be a collection of ideas from Daniel Pink, Keirsey, and Steve Martin…I was familiar with the first two, but after a couple different people mentioned it, I also picked up Steve Martin’s, “Born Standing Up” which is somewhat fascinating, with the overarching thesis being simply this: hustle. So, enough excuses, it’s time to get busy.
Challenge number three is this:
Select a print ad from before 1980 that you admire, then redesign it in a contemporary style as a full-page color ad.
I found some old Kodak ads that sparked my interest and went after a minimalist design. A little rusty, but glad to be back at it.
