We were surprised to check the images we’d gathered for inspiration this summer and see two main themes: abstract curves + geometric shapes. The juxtaposition of what might seem like two separate avenues of inspiration turns out to pair as perfectly as peanut butter + jelly.
Images of ink swatches, agates, and macro texture shots filled our Pinterest inspiration board – and not surprisingly so. Although summer is usually a time to take it slow, the helium studio is bustling with projects for clients old and new. Amidst all that hard [but rewarding] work, it’s no surprise we gravitated towards more abstract images that calmed our busy minds. It’s our take on visual relaxation.
In between the abstract images, we also saw hints of very structured + geometric elements seep up through the cracks. Perhaps it’s subconscious hints of a future geometric logo to-be-designed or, maybe, we just can’t get enough of a geometric pattern.
Although August + September are the hottest months of the year on our side of the world, our most recent moodboard is full of cool tones. Blues, greys, and mints brought in an unexpected fall/winter inspired color palette. Maybe we’re like fashion designers – already thinking of the seasons ahead!
A quick look at our Instagram account and you can’t deny we sure love our plants. We might as well change our signature helium blue to green! The natural world inspires us day to day and having plants to gaze at while we work is, well, just dreamy. And, of course, a couple of those plant shots make to our Instagram where we like to share our daily inspiration with our loving community.
What imagery will inspire us in the upcoming months? We can’t wait to find out! Stay up to date on what’s happening at the studio on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @heliumcreative.
