This week walk in love. is teaming up with the talented Cymone Wilder! She will be taking over the VRSLY and putting his amazing designs on display every day this week! Here is a quick interview with Cymone so you can get a better idea of who she is and what inspires her work!
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I'm a 20 year old graphic design student at Olivet Nazarene University. Since I'm still in school, and it's stupid expensive, I work three jobs. I create web graphics and posters for the library, and photograph for two marketing departments. I can't complain though, because I get do stuff that I love to do! I'm super duper single, so that gives me time to have deep talks and feels with my friends and fly kites on the good days. I love listening to music and hand lettering. The two are inseparable.
2. What inspired you while making these designs?
A lot of my inspiration has come from the music I'm listening to right now. I'm a HUGE Lord Huron fan, so you can almost guarantee that their record is playing in my ears at least once a day. Their stuff takes you on an adventure and I always feel inspired to draw some letters when I'm listening in. I'm also listening to Citizens, Ghost Ship, Judah and the Lion, and some others. They all have some really solid Christ centered lyrics, which gets me inspired too!
3. What was your process like?
My process can vary from day to day, but I usually scope out some words first. I'll sketch up some ideas, and if not in love with what I'm making I'll go find some inspiration from Pinterest or Instagram. Once I've sketched a solid idea, I ink it up and "scan" (take a picture with my phone) it in. I give it some photoshop love and voila!
4. What is your hope for people when they use your designs?
My hope is that everyone using my design feels as inspired as I did creating them! I love having the opportunity to spread some joy to my friends on Instagram, and I hope everyone has that same opportunity.
