I love personal projects and I love seeing the personal projects that designers and makers choose to do. It seems to be a really important thing for creatives. An opportunity to totally let themselves go and create something that is not in anyway influenced by a client. I was really inspired by this personal project by Dana Tanamachi in collaboration with Andrew Ryan Shepherd this week. And Dana's other typography work is just amazing too. You should take some time to explore her website.
Some other personal projects that I have enjoyed checking out in the past are the hand written letter project by Craig Oldham and The daily drop cap project by Jessica Hische (also listen to one of her talks where she talks about procrastiworking and her side projects - it is so spot on! and see all her side projects here).
It feels so good to get inspired. The internet can really be an awesome place.
Happy Friday Folks!
