Thoughts & things about design, travel, and lettering.

Look to the Future

A bit of the process behind creating these fortune tellers for my side biz Lazy Supply Co. I'm not quite sure where the idea for this came from but once I started sketching I was really excited! I knew right off the bat that I wanted a nice chunky script which, honestly, is what most of my lettering explorations end up being. But! For a new twist I wanted to try some cut-ins and shadows much like the work of Mark Caneso. Also my original phrase was "Look Beyond" but to better fill the square space I changed it to the phrase "Look to the Future". It was a lot of fun to work out all of the dot patterns and see how they worked together. They also ended up being a great way to add depth and dimension while keeping the design one color. Lovely Stardust White from Neenah Paper made the finished product look stunning! Pick up your own here
