If you are following me on Instagram, these images will be familiar. As a way to have content, I make typographic and image collages of quotes that I liked and found interesting or inspiring. I’d look for quotes on creativity, love of books, inspiration, writing, and anything else that makes my heart filled with joy.
I like to experiment with the shape for the quote, the alignment, and the layout. You might notice that I often use circles for the quote shape. I happen to really like that shape. I change the alignment and placement of the quote, based partly on what the background image is but mostly on what emphasizes and illustrates the message that I am trying to convey visually.
Playing with Circles as Design
Using the same palette for a while…
Coffee series. This was to tie in with my branding images of Sweetwater Inn Stories
Transitioning color palette. It was spring. And … I felt like it.
Transitioning to quotes with branding … for name recognition. I started including the with love, michelleraabwrites as part of the collage. I was thinking in case people reposted it, that I could get some passive name recognition and also I thought it would tie in with the other “original” content that I was posting. The “with love” started, I think as part of the branding content for announcement images. Part of my identity, my image is that I am doing this with love. It’s authentic, so that helps. lol. I am doing it with love.
