Are Chalkboard Designs Still Cool? November 07 2013, 0 Comments
Every year there seems to be some sort of new card design trend. Last year it was the chalkboard. I'm wondering if it's still in style? I hope so because I personally LERVE it. I'm not sure how or why it started. In the past I remember seeing really fancy well designed boards in restaurants and boutiques and somehow maybe that spilled into card designs?
I am blown away and almost humbled by the organic typesetting going on in the above images. As a designer who is constantly creating on the computer, I feel that I am losing my natural God given artistic abilities (thank you Adobe & Mac). Maybe I need to paint that lonely hallway wall in black chalkboard paint and get down with some chalk. And than when someone says "I love that!", I can smugly reply "Pinterest".
Anyway, here are my own "chalkboard designs by Ian & Lola".
