My Latest Envelope

Milestone III: Painted Letters

To wrap everything up, I applied a drop shadow effect on the letterforms. Excited to see what Adam thinks of his envelope.

Milestone I: Inspiration

I turned to some of my favorite typography books and signage in my neighborhood as reference material to start practicing my strokes. Along the way, I've been modifying different letterforms to make them my own style.
