Remember the beautiful drawings you made as a child? Hopefully, one or two originals are still stored away in a box somewhere to serve as a reminder of one of Lemonly’s biggest beliefs: everyone possesses creativity.
When our fellow designer Brett introduced the topic of this month’s creative workshop, the concept was a great reminder of that innate artistic ability everyone has. Brett showed the designers three fantastic Instagram accounts featuring children’s artwork and presented us the challenge of recreating one of their pieces with our own illustrated twist.
We were blown away by these talented little ones—and a little nervous about whether or not we’d be able to do these mini-masterpieces justice! But we put our nerves aside and got to work with 50 minutes on the clock to put together our best version of one of these drawings.
