Sexta-feira

I was really excited to do this project...it was real fun!

Since I'm brazilian, I wanted to make something in portuguese that I could send to my friends. So I thought about bar neon signs and how great fridays are. I wanted to do something inspired by friday's happy hour, and having a nice time with friends.

So the word I chose is "sexta-feira" which means friday in english.

The next image is from a pinterest board I created about neon signs. I really want to add a lot more pins to it. But for this project I was really researching about signs for bars.

I started sketching a more cursive lettering, but as I moved on to Illustrator I started experimenting with blocked letters, and trying to connect letters together in one single stroke.
