12 Days of Design Day 5: Progress Round Up!

DEC 11, 2015

12 days of design


We're almost half way through our 12 days of Design #spoonchallenge, so far we've gathered inspiration, picked a themed, made a mood board, developed a color palette and chosen a medium. Wow! By now, you are well on your way to a beautiful surface design. The best part of any #spoonchallenge is sharing photos and getting inspired by what the community is creating. Take a look at some of the beautiful #spoonchallenge snaps, and don't forget to upload your own and tag them!

We always love the #huesday posts from @modmagpie! Her little festive trees make the perfect color palette for a design.

Sometimes inspiration comes at the strangest times, like for @susanlabrum who was waiting at an airport she snapped this pic!

Like most things, becoming a surface designer takes practice, just a little each day. We've still got 7 more days to go for this #spoonchallenge, so be sure to sign up now if you have't yet!
