Sometimes, if I’m really running low on other sources of inspiration I’ll look to websites that curate “inspiring design” which is rarely actual design and equally rarely actually inspiring. For some reason, the past six months have been filled with super fake vintage effects applied to boring photos and then covered in some sort of “design element” like transparent coloured circles or diagonal hairlines and then something “inspiring” is written in Univers or Helvetica.
There should have to be a test you take in order to wield such fine typefaces all willy-nilly like that. You wouldn’t give these people a rifle, they can stick to the water guns: comic sans.
But honestly, that’s not even real graphic design. Stop it.
