Lust List Volume 003 //
Volume three of the Lust List has arrived – Here’s a collective of all the items Nat’s currently lusting after. Race you to the checkout…
To me window shopping is a necessity. Not only to get an idea of what I want to buy when it comes to payday, but also to gather inspiration, follow trends and soak up ideas that current market has to offer. As a designer it is important to research general design, in every form and use these ideas and translate these in your work.
I also think it comes with the trait to lust after nice things. Homeware, books, paper goods, accessories… You name it I want it. Stick some nice typography on a simple magazine and I’m sold… hook line and sinker. So every so often I find myself procrastinating on my lunch break and filling my virtual basket with an array of ‘bits’ to suffice my shopping cravings while taking on the challenging activity of reminding myself not to spend everything in my bank and be careful with those oh so important pennies. In these circumstances I create a lust list, a digital basket of goodies that I’ll return to and possibly purchase on the arrival of that all important payday. Here’s the 3rd edition of 2016’s Lust List.
