Diagram of Inspirations
pen, handwritten text, embroidery thread, pins, stickers. A0 size.

This large hand lettered diagram is an attempt to record all of the things that inspire me and define me, and was my response to an OSNS assignment. I structured it as a radial tree diagram, but I omitted the ‘branches’ so that I can use threads to connect ideas in unexpected new ways. I haven’t seen this approach used before, and I like that it is simple and tactile.
