Who doesn’t love fireworks? Well . . . besides the dog and the baby. Personally I think fireworks are great and the bigger the display the better! This weekend will present many opportunities for viewing fireworks as we celebrate Independence Day here in the USA on July 4th. These 4th of July fireworks displays can also serve as great inspiration for graphic designers, photographers and artists. Why not use that colorful, explosive experience as design inspiration when creating your next great design for digital printing or offset printing?
To get those creative juices flowing and inspire you I've come up with a list of some cool links related to fireworks. Check them out!
