Handlettering and ModCloth’s Community Inspire “In With the You”

“Lazy Jane” and other typography-based Shel Silverstein poems inspired the unique graphic design treatment for our latest stylebook, In With the You. Our gorgeous models, Adelle, Lily, and Madison, embodied our inspirational ModCloth community in looks built upon a soft springtime palette, with nods toward cold weather layering techniques – a bowed jersey scarf here, a felt hat there, or a shiny slicker in case of sudden downpours. And, as usual, quintessential vintage style continues to inspire all of the creative folks who work on each and every ModCloth stylebook.

Here are just some of the images that inspired me as I set out to style In With the You, as well as behind-the-scenes snaps from our shoot!
