Inspiration Board

My favorite part of doing identity work for a client or stationery is putting together an inspiration board for my client. I love the searching for images and dreaming of everything that could be possible in their design. Also, I feel the inspiration board is the best way for me to communicate my vision than any amount of words I could write or say. 

Being a graphic designer we communicate best visually and have mastered the art of doing so, which means we have to remember to bring our clients into our minds of what we see as they describe their needs, company, and wants. 

I just put together one of my favorite boards yet for one of my recent clients I have been anxiously awaiting to begin this fall, which means I couldn’t wait to share what I am dreaming about and being inspired by for this project. 

So I thought I would share a few of the things that are very much driving my design on this project.


The quilt directly below from Pottery Barn is where my inspiration began.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
