In my life as graphic designer, I usually have rules to obey. Assignments where text should be readable (!), pictures be decodable, page no. 12 should follow 11, and so on.
I like this—but I also really like making stuff where I have to follow NO RULES. The Dear Diary-project is like this, and the collages too. Sometimes telling a little story, sometimes just a color, or emphera gathering. I love how I know nothing about the little piece before I begin (I rarely plan a collage). We just sort of take each other for a walk.
So today I thought about asking you to stroll along (if you'd like, and have the time?). I have no idea how it's gonna turn out, or if it'll be any good/pretty/interesting? (woup, felt the sligt sting of fear of not doing good for a sec there :) Anyhoo—stage one for this is some elements (which of course might be replaced, partly or alltogether—time will tell.
:-)Let's walk ...
A few links: I love this pair from Mrs. Eliot Books.
