"That looks like a good idea!"
Where do good ideas come from? The suggestion here is that often one idea collides with another idea, forming a new, unique idea. Call it the collaborative process of creativity as sometimes those ideas come from other individuals.
For the Inspired By activity, you will create a Photoshop print ad inspired by a professional example. That inspiration could come in the form of layout, the use of elements within the ad, or even the message the ad communicates.
The result of this exercise is often an increased awareness of the production of print ads including advertising theory, image working with text, and effective layout for strong print ads.
