A couple of weeks ago I made another online birthday web-page for my friend Darren. I decided to go with a bold typography piece using my pattern work ^_^.
I’m not a huge fan of plain-minimalist-sans-serif-all-caps typography but it’s something I’ve never tried to create before. While I re-used pattern shapes from a previous project (still had to adjust each one to fit properly), the letter bases were made from scratch.
I originally intended to have each letter’s ‘drop shadow’ pointing in different directions but it didn’t work out the way I intended. Instead, I chose to keep the letter’s shadows the same but place them at different height alignments.
Anyway, below are some of my progress screenshots from creating it ^_^. I have a lot more cards to start making off the next couple m0nths (Christmas isn’t far off!) so expect more card posts in your future!
