INTO IT: INFLATED/DEFLATED
Who say’s originality is dead?! Inflated/Deflated is a collaborative design project by three Chicago-based creatives Jillian Barthold, Lauren Connolly, and Kady Dennell, with photography by Nathan Legsdin.
Each colorful deflated balloon features a hand-lettered message ranging from the humorous to heartfelt. New additions are updated via their blog, and prints of the pieces — which I have to say would make an amazing graphic statement if you had a large wall to feature a grid of them — are available on Etsy.
Who would’ve thought deflated balloons could say so much? Sorry, I’m still used to the typical ‘Happy Birthday’ message! Which reminds me, two of my best friends just celebrated their birthdays.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Banks and Luis!!! Love you both to bits!!! 🙂 xoooxxooo
