A few years ago, April 2006-2009 to be exact, I used to host an ad inspiration challenge over on Two Peas in Bucket. I posted an inspiration piece, usually an ad from a magazine, sometimes a magazine layout, a movie poster, a book cover or even a website design, and challenged people to use that inspiration piece as the basis for a layout. It was a lot of fun and really helped everyone who played along, learn about design.
Here’s a few examples:
And possibly one of my all-time favorite layouts, even if it is about me!
And why am I telling you all this, you might ask? Well, I’m bringing it back! Next Monday, May 2nd will be the start of a new ad inspiration challenge right here. Until then, I’ll leave you with a sneak peek of the first challenge.
I hope you’ll play along!
