Inside Inspo Vol. 2 – with Leah Douglas
Junior Copywriter Leah Douglas’ “Inside Inspo” is a bi-monthly dive into sites that are a source of inspiration for McCanners
For Volume 2 of “Inside Inspo,” I picked the brains of Art Directors Mikey Harmon and Matt Zimmerman.
These sites are packed with visual stimulation, photographers, designers and much-needed randomness. All you McCanners wanting a delightful distraction, scroll please.
Anyone looking for fresh photographer meat or mood board motifs? Eva Zar is a New York-based artist and student at Parsons School of Design. Her work oozes feminism, pastel-goth, rawness and realness. Check her out, it won’t disappoint.
On the opposite end of the visual spectrum, New York-based photographer Nicholas Alan Cope’s work takes a more serious, monochromatic, deep and eerie tone. If you’re wanting more macabre, check out “Putesco” or “Still Life.”
If you’re Amazon Prime obsessed, all I can say is, I’m sorry. Canopy is all the best parts of Amazon, in one place. Bye-bye paycheck.
For the love of color, check out Norah Stone. This young designer has a unique and vibrant style worth checking out. And you might have seen it plastered all over NYC for the MTV Video Music Awards.
Want to waste 5 minutes? Obsessed with gifs? See Hear Party is a gif-based music visualizer. It pulls gifs from Giphy, music from Soundcloud and generates a montage that is synchronized to the beat of the music. V cool.
If you need a new Insta account to spice up your feed and are A-okay with the visually strange, this one’s for you.
