This post is part of my weekly series of posts showing the most inspiring images of the week. This is also known as my scratch list. As my design and creative mentors have always said “scratch even when you don’t itch.” So I like to keep a list of designs, products, logos, and photos that inspire me to look at later when I am itching for creativity 😀
