Take That Fork

I chose the phrase "When you come to a fork in the road, take it" by Yogi Berra. My dad loves to quote Yogi and I find this phrase both inspiration and hilarious.


My jumping off point was definitely the imagery in the phrase itself, and also some general ideas that Yogi Berra brought up for me. After doing some online research, I realized that a lot of people were already portraying this phrase with an image of a fork literally in the road, so I decided to hold off on that specific idea.

I was inspired by the idea of old-school baseball, traveling by car when it was still a new thing and an adventure, and being outdoors.


Wow, it took me way too long to get back to this project! In thinking about it some more, I realized I focused on very image-heavy ideas, rather than on any particular lettering style or ideas. I created another complementary ideas board, this time focusing on lettering techniques -- mostly inspired by old-school roadtrips and service stations.
