One of my favorite things about design is concept developing and brainstorming. It gives me a certain rush when I develop a concept that I believe will work. What some designers do to practice concept development is to choose a word or make up a company name to start with. I found this difficult until I stumbled upon @Blank Poster.

Blank Poster is an online art and design community with a following of 42.2k on Instagram. There account is design oriented and aims to get creatives of all ages involved in their community to share their personal works and inspire others. But what exactly is it that Blank Poster does? They describe their page as “An open platform for creatives to make posters based on one simple guideline – a randomly generated word.” I thought this was a fantastic idea to propose and to get people practicing on their design skills and keep their creative minds busy.

From post to post it is incredible to see how different individuals approach their poster concepts based on the key word of the week.

Word: CAPTAIN

Word: ME

Word: INSIDE

Word: BALANCE

Word: VOLUME
