First in Flight
When I was approached by Mitch of Humbly Made to create some lettering for a t-shirt, he used the words “manly, thicker scripts, vintage, rough, textured, edgy, bold” to describe the look he wanted.
We ended up with a composition that included a subtle bi-plane illustration to tie in the meaning of the phrase.
I was provided with these stylistic examples for inspiration and reference. These were used as visual guides to keep the design on track.
