Know Your Design History

One thing I wish I had paid more attention to in college was design history. I appreciate the knowledge much more now that I’m out of school and have been brushing up on my design prowess with the MFA Designer As Auther Paul Rand Lectures from the School of Visual Arts.

I spent way too long last night designing invitations and gathering inspiration like this Ban.do party to get the ideas flowing. I also love their birthday video by Shark Pig, shown below.
