Carpe Diem (Seize The Day) - Custom Lettering

Since this is the first time I'm tried custom lettering, I decided to go with something simple. "Carpe Diem" means "seize the day", and I though it would be intersting to create something for a popular and motivational phrase.





I wanted to sketch out my idea and make changes in an existing font instead of making the lettering from scratch. That is why I tried focusing more on the idea than the shapes and forms.

That's all folks. Hope you guys like it. Would love to know what you guys think about it.

And thanks for the class Ray! Loved how you spoke about various other aspects of design before you actually started with the teaching.
