As you probably know, I´m a really newbie designer, planning to open a store somewhere soon. I´m opening this topic to share an idea that have been on my mind for a while now...
Sometimes, when designing, I feel that some kits complement each other very well: They are independent, and sometimes have different themes, but they go along to expand the possibility of uses; sometimes I feel I make two separate kits that go along very well, sometimes I feel like some kits work really well with others (want an example? I´m using Oxford and Prague together in a photobook... And Oxford with Superlatives in another one - If you look on my gallery you´ll see layouts featuring cats and those two kits...).
What I think that makes a kit go well with other is, probably, that they have at least one very similar color - the first time I stopped to think of it I thought it was a "color coincidence" but well, it keeps happening... and it works!
I´d like to know if I´m getting crazy and I´m the one who thinks of it, of if there are other people that think - and use kits - like that. Also, how useful would be if a designer indicates kits of her own that can complement each other? Or do you use a single kit and wouldn´t really be confortable to mix two or more? Do you think that complementary kits may be a good strategy?
