Last night I attended a workshop organized by two incredibly talented ladies, Bri Emery [of DesignLoveFest] and Jen Gotch [of Ban.do]. It was a casual and fun event where creativity took on a new form: the inspiration string. They’ve essentially reinvented the mood board, making it more tactile and 3d and awesome. We were encouraged to bring our own trinkets and ephemera, but of course they supplied us with oodles of colorful and sparkly bits to help us along. And to set the mood just right, this all took place inside of one of the happiest places on earth; Anthropologie. It was almost too much eye candy to handle. I do like how mine came out, and it looks pretty neat in my office, don’t you think?
