The Art of Window Displays

An upcoming window display project for school has me exploring some fabulous window displays. It is amazing to see the creative process and the elaborate displays produced.

Our task for school is to outfit a window at the Salvation Army and create magic! We came into the project full of inspiration and elaborate ideas for the window. Unfortunately, we are realizing our ideas would be hard to execute with the small selection in the store and are back to the drawing board!

Here is the window location we are dealing with:

Hopefully we will find some new inspiration with the following photos (and quickly):

In preparation for the project, my partner Amanda (blog) and I did a quick one-hour window display with household items to understand the basic principles and elements of design and prepare for our ultimate project:

Hope we can get inspired quickly and start putting our ideas into production!

I’m off to the Canadian Design Bloggers event tonight and can’t wait to meet up with all of the fabulous bloggers I am inspired by each day.
