just my type
i find inspiration all over. and when it comes to paper goods, some of the best inspiration comes from old letterhead. that's why i love the site letterheady, which culls notable stationery from the desks of famous people and places. another site i can't seem to get enough is art of the menu. aside from making me hungry, perusing the site gives me lots of great ideas for invitations, menus, and anything else i could design.
for more illustrative type i pop over to friend's of type. those folks are pretty talented.
one of my other favorite spots to find type and design inspiration is none other than the liquor store. have you spent any time really looking at liquor labels? some of them are really, really special. if you pop into the right store it's almost the equivalent of a little art gallery. plus, you can drink the inspiration and contemplate signature cocktails for the big day. double whammy.
