inspiration e-zine: issue two.

I’m so excited to release the second [and FREE!] issue of Inspiration: Design for Mankind’s monthly e-zine. [If you missed the first issue, click here to view/download!] I’ve been working nonstop for the past month to bring you another dose of inspiration and it is my hope that you find this issue equally (if not more so!) motivating in your quest to accomplish each and every one of your goals. Whether you’re a designer, doctor, stay-at-home mom or trash collector, I think we can all use a bit of inspiration in our daily lives.

Hats off to you, readers— this one’s for you.

Click here to download the second issue of Inspiration, only at Design for Mankind.

Note: If you’d like to join the mailing list for future Inspiration issues (each month!), email me right here with subject line ‘Mailing List.’ OR, subscribe to the Design for Mankind feed on the righthand corner, powered by FeedBlitz.

Note #2: THANK YOU for your sweet comments— I’m overwhelmed, once again! The upcoming issues may stray from inspiration boards but will still be centered around inspiration in the home. If you’d like to be involved, email me here!

  • Thanks so much Erin…a real thrill to see what all the other designers have on their minds. I tell you that the only thing that would have made this issue any better was if I had been chose for the front cover. (I love the cover too – just want to be a smart alec!)

  • Dear Erin,
    Hello from Portugal!!
    I just came across your blog and I was completely overwhelmed with it. It is really inspirational to see so many beautiful things put together in the same place in such a great way. I couldn’t resist the urge of printing out your e-zine, subscribing the feeds and walk around to see everything. Thanks a lot for doing such a great work and for helping us (at least me!) to go through less inspirational times with such inspirational things! Keep up the good work!

  • Just found you. Wonderful! and thank you for the download. The Zine looks delicious!


  • Just wanted to say your blog is great and it’s been an inspiration to me to get crafty! thanks so much for the ezine as well since it’s a great visual.

    Looking forward to the next one.


  • Erin, Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration with us! It is truly beautiful. Your passion is very visible! Thank you also for the encouragement that you can find your life’s “work” when you’re young. I feel the same way!

    Thank you!!!
