On to the Next One!

So, this was probably the funnest class I've taken on Skillshare so far. Erik is a solid teacher and I enjoyed every mintue of the process.

I'm from Kansas City, MO and currently trying to increase my skills in typography and experimenting with different mediums. This envelope goes out to my girlfriend!

For inspiration, I've taken a lot of cues from hand-letters and sign painters I follow on Instagram, some old books and manuals, etc. There's some great hand-painted signs in my hometown, KC.

Settled on a bold san-seriff typeface and messed around with it before settling on a final sketch.

Finished envelope!
Composition got messed up a little when I tried to transfer it to the envelope unfortunately. It's not perfect but I had a blast and I'll do better on the next one!
