Focus On What You Want Poster Design


Creative Box of Reasoning is a side project. It started as a way to end a creative block by “IGNORE EVERYONE” as in critics, paying way TOO much attention to what everyone else is doing and simply focus on what I wanted professionally and personally. The idea is to help others move forward, inspire them to have courage and do what needs to get done.

Because I love typography and never seem to grow tired of Helvetica’s clean, dependable face, I created a challenge of writing pithy lines of inspiration, (not sappy, but snarky), into an allotted square space resulting in a series of twelve “mini posters.” The idea would be to take this concept one step further by printing these in letterpress.

WOW! I just read through the BOXs. These took me back to my 10th grade art teacher, who stood me in front of a pyramid that clearly pointed to its first layer words not allowed spoken in his class room. They were the words “I can’t.”

You state you would like to silk screen each of those BOXs onto something that could hang from the ceiling, displaying each BOX and the beautiful words inside them.

This is an impressive idea. KUDOS girl.
