Design Inspiration in London

As I've been exploring the city, I've felt exhilarated, but at times overstimulated, because there's a constant flow of visual information, people, and places to go in the city. As a way to remember and document my experience, I have been slowly collecting design pieces (ads, posters, flyers, books, pamphlets, etc.) that inspire me. Thus far (a week into study abroad) I have visited the British Museum and library, Tate Museum, and the London Eye; explored King's Cross, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Westminster, Fitzrovia, Seven Dials, Jubilee Gardens, and Covent Garden. Of course I've also frequented the tube (which can be quite a source of inspiration for the witty ads and amazing street musicians), several antique/book stores, record shops, and countless cafes.
