• Design Free Thursday // Inflated/Deflated.


    Posted on 27th September, by Dana Tomić Hughes in graphics + illustration, random fun. 2 Comments

    I recently discovered a new (to me) Tumblr blog Inflated/Deflated initiated by three creatives based out of Chicago. Jillian, Lauren, and Kady wanted to share their simple project which shows words written on balloons.


    “The words written on our balloons range from humorous quotes to heartfelt feelings and memories. These words are marked on the surface of inflated balloons, and like that of one’s thoughts being released, so too is the air of the balloon.”

    Happy, happy, joy, joy! They also sell their prints right here.
