Thoughts & things about design, travel, and lettering.

Greetings from the Holy City

It's been a crazy exciting summer. I illustrated an animation for the first time, followed quickly by doing some illustration work on a second animation! Another project in the works is a Charleston  postcard set, which was a delight to do research for and gather inspiration. 

Thanks to the power of the internet - and a few Google and Pinterest searches - I came across these incredible postcards from The Boston Public Library. Most of these are listed as being created between 1930 - 1945 but some remind me of 1990s Microsoft Word Art (not even in an insulting way!) 

It goes to show that even though a lot has changed, good design is timeless :) I can only hope to emulate the charm of these postcards!
