Advertising, Communication, Marketing

I find inspiration in the strangest places, and they usually involve food!

No matter where I go, I am always looking for ideas and inspiration. A couple of years ago I used the cover of the Chuy’s menu for typography inspiration for a recruiting postcard.

Last week, I spotted a sign at Whataburger that got me thinking about a social media graphic that could advertise some of our district programs.

I would also like to point out that I do most of these design jobs in Canva! It’s so easy to use, most of the elements I need are free, and the ones that I pay for are only $1. Easy and cheap … can’t beat it!

Where is the last strange place you found design inspiration?

Communication, Google

Monthly communications scorecard in a Google Doc format so you can use it, too!

I recently saw the below “communications scorecard” on the NSPRA Connect forum from the Pattonville School-Community Relations Team. (BTW, if you aren’t already taking advantage of the NSPRA Connect forum, I highly recommend it!)

Producing something like this for my superintendent and school board had already been on my mind, so I set out to recreate the beautiful template from Pattonville in a Google Doc format. I am pleased with the result and am happy to share the file so you can use it, too!
