Alliteration Inspiration: Dairy & Drop Caps

Alliteration Inspiration is a weekly column featuring the top twenty pieces of visual inspiration based on two random alliterative themes. This week’s thematic combo: dairy & drop caps.

Dairy

If my ‘B’ in high school anatomy class serves me, I do believe it’s the mouse-clicking finger bone that’s connected to the design bone, and there’s nothing like a little calcium-rich dairy to keep those bones strong. Milk these ten pieces of udder design perfection for all they’re worth and you’ll have inspiration till the cows come home.

Drop caps

While the truly ornate drop caps of yore are somewhat of a lost art, today’s newspapers, designers and even Spongebob are doing their best to keep them alive in the 21st century. The ten specimen below are sure to drop some knowledge on your noggin’.
