Inspired by some really cool stuff Ash Thorp has been making: http://ashthorp.tumblr.com/
Basically, he gives himself 10 minutes to create a design using only renders he’s made, photographs he’s taken, fonts installed on his computer etc.
I need to get back into doing these, here’s a few from last fall/winter that turned out to be interesting. Note that if you start doing these most of them probably won’t be any good, but they’re fun, and challenge you to try new things. Think of them as a kind of thumbnail sketch.
