NYC Transit Standards Manual

Good morning!

I stumbled upon a post that the original New York City Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual from 1970, which was recently found in a locker beneath old gym clothes. When I first saw this my reaction was “Yeah, okay, who cares, a big book of letters”, but the more I thought about it, the cooler it seemed. This book contains the code to the transportation designs of NYC!

DIY Inspiration Board

Hi!

Something I have always wanted to be able to do was to create an inspiration board. If you follow me on Pintrest, then you will know that I have been collecting tons of ideas for one.

So, today in my new room I finally put one up!! Not only is it super easy, but the end result is really cool. Here are the instructions so you can make your own:

Materials

String, tape (that can be on walls), scissors, paperclips, photos/papers to put up on your board

Directions

1. Gather materials

2. Tape string onto wall, so it makes a slight “U” shape.

3. Latch a paperclip onto one of the photos/papers you would like to use

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Attach paperclip onto string

6. Continue with the rest of the photos/papers

Tip: the tape I used was a bright blue, so  I taped photos on top of it as a cover.

You can also try having a theme, like all one color, etc. Have fun with it!
