Ideastap: Greed Brief


Heard of Ideastap? its a creative network where all sorts of creative folk get their creative hats on and do lots of creative things spanning from acting, to journlism, photography & graphic design with loads more in between. They have lots of opportunities and briefs listed up all the time. I just joined in Decemeber and entered the Editor's Brief for that month which was on the theme of Greed with my idea above & what do you know I came third, yay! I wanted to get across the idea that as soon as you want something you get an idea on how to get it and as soon as you get it you want something else and the cycle is endlessy repeated. Check out the shortlist & other winners here. Now I need to sort something out for the Bauhaus brief next.

I've just created a Tumblr to record lots of inspiration, I've only had it a day and I've already posted music, videos, podcasts, posters, quotes & a magazine layout. I've recently started a course in Graphic Design and it'll help me collect all my different inspirations in one place. I'll still be keeping this blog but it might not be updated with anything for a while so if you like follow me on my tumblr: lots of white space or I'll be on my twitter: louweasely
