COLOR(LESS) CARDS

I just loved the mix of simplicity and bold in these cards. They’ve got the edge painting that gives a very simple design a little extra something.

CURRENTLY INSPIRED BY

I ran across a few images this past week that reminded me of how I want to represent my own brand.

This week I’m inspired by:

• Pops of color
• Green, Purple + White
• Sharpies
• Geometric Shapes

This then reminded me of how my style has changed.

The image on the left represents an image that I would have chosen to express myself about a year ago. The image on the right represents an image that I would choose to express me now.

The biggest surprise for me is how my opinion of color has changed. I used to be drawn to a lot of white and black with little color. If there was color, it would be muted. Now, I can’t stop myself from being drawn to more rich & vibrant colors. My rebrand will definitely show this change of heart. I have a very outspoken personality, and I think these colors do a good job of showing that.

Has your style noticeably changed? Or maybe you haven’t noticed yet, but after reading this post you will?! Tell me!

MAGAZINES

As I’m researching inspiration for my redesign, I’m finding myself drawn more and more to punchy colors with natural roots. I’ve always known I have loved the two separately, but not together. I think this research is allowing me to figure myself out a little more than I thought it would.

Here are some more magazine clippings that really stuck with me.

CANVAS & CANVAS

I ran across this image on Pinterest and had to find out where that artwork was from. Turns out it’s from a place called Canvas & Canvas, which curates a gallery of affordable (and limited amounts of) artwork. Each piece from below can be found in the abstract gallery.

Which one is your fave?

MY INSPIRATION

Nature is the Biggest Inspiration for Amanda Genther Design

Nature is the Biggest Inspiration for Amanda Genther Design

I recently got asked to submit a quote to a publication about what inspires my work, creativity and daily life. I knew this answer right away without any hesitation.

Nature Inspiration

The only inspiration I need. I am in love with green plants (fake, because I can’t keep the real ones alive) and pretty flowers. I could furnish my entire apartment with light pine wood (about 75% of my living room already is). I even prefer more natural elements for everyday products, like recycled kraft envelopes instead of plain white ones.

When I saw the new issue of Sister Mag, I was so happy because they have an entire section dedicated to your Garden and their photos were amazing and full of inspiration for me!

What inspires your work?

NEW PLACE

I’m busy moving today and setting up the place tomorrow, so things around here might get quiet for a day or two. The best part (for me) about this move is the fact that my office will now have a real live door. Yes, I’m very excited! Here is some inspiration i’m using for my new office. Enjoy!

packaging

I’ve recently signed on a couple of clients who need new packaging for their business, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with their styles. I’ve been collecting a ton of inspiration lately.

mountains & calm colors

Happy Monday! I have another inspiration board to share with everyone!

So, do you love this inspiration board as much as I do? I’m obsessed with it, and good for me, the client is, too! The colors of the palette are so calm and soothing, it’s bound to be a relaxing project. Plus, she already has a great design aesthetic.

I can’t wait to share more. Stay tuned!

the wanderlust shop

How have I not heard of this shop before? I was catching up on blogs last night and happened to stumble across Oh, Hello Friend, who apparently runs three online shops. Can you say, go-getter?

All of her shops are amazingly beautiful. My all-time favorite is The Wanderlust shop. I’ve already added three items to my cart, some things for my office and for my clients. I can’t wait to get them in the mail!
