⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This past month, I was presented with the opportunity to design bespoke wedding invitations for some friends of mine! They were looking for a design with calligraphy details based around a navy blue and champagne theme, and this was the result!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The deep blue hues really help bring out the gold foil accents and presents an elegant and sophisticated yet modern take. The calligraphy details were handwritten by yours truly, as well as the illustrated floral elements on the borders. Everything else was designed in Adobe InDesign and Illustrator.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I want to take this chance to thank @tphcanada for assisting me with this project with their affordable quotes, quick responses, and fast turnarounds!

𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎 𝑳𝒖𝒄𝒓𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒖𝒔, 𝑫𝒆 𝑹𝒆𝒓𝒖𝒎 𝑵𝒂𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒂 𝑰𝑽,

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This is part 1 of a beautiful poem taken from a little book called Poems of Sleep and Dreams, part of the Everyman's Library Pocket Poets collection that I bought during my trip last year to LA's The Last Bookstore. The imagery in this particular poem was beautifully strong, which inspired me to give it my own little spin.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀During this time of isolation and solitude due to quarantine, I've really embraced the quiet moments where I can just shut off the world and focus on me, and my work. It does come in waves, as my mind flows from thinking about what direction I want my work to go.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I've a lot of thoughts, and I'm learning to be comfortable with these thoughts. Throughout this process, I've learned how much I want these moments of reflection to continue in the future because of how much I come out the other side understanding myself more than I did before.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀For this prompt, I went with the obvious. Discovery is the act of expanding your knowledge; of the world, of what you think you know, with the help of professors, by reading books.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀A note about the custom typeface: I had some struggles when creating the letter "s." Turns out it's not so easy to get the symmetry of the letter just the way you want it to look, and I spent a lot of time adjusting the beginning and ending terminals. Originally I was going with a more rounded approach, but it never seemed to look right so I asked @wizardsamongus for some second opinions. He suggested serifs to keep it consistent with the rest of the letters and it turned out that was just what it needed!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀When I was thinking about how to lay @wizardsamongus' props out for this word, I was considering what I would bring with me if I had to live under the stairs for a good number of years. It's not a pleasant experience, and I think it would be easy to lose grip on reality in such a cramped space.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀With that in mind, I would hang up posters of world maps and celestial maps to remind myself that there's more to the world than just the four walls that surrounded me. I would bring a journal with me to write down my thoughts. In such a constricting household, it would be a place where I could feel free to expand my mind, where I otherwise couldn't if I was living with the Dursley's. I'd also bring the Fantastic Beasts book as well, having had an affinity for creatures at a young age. Finally, the cherry blossoms to bring some beauty into this otherwise bleak space.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I firmly believe that while you can't change the situations that are handed to you, you can still control how you react and how you respond to it. Making the best of the situation is what I think Harry also ended up learning during this conflicting stage in his life, and helped shape his headstrong intentions when it came to reaching his goals, whatever they were.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀New month, new challenge, new custom typeface 😂 I'm actually participating in this challenge with my favourite wizard, @wizardsamongus. I provide the letters, he provides the props, and we both do our own arrangement!⁣ Oh, and thank you to @theartofnathannaerica for hosting this magical challenge 😁
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀You'll find in this picture many of the things I'll be bringing with me upon my arrival at #hogwartscastle. My wand, an absolute must. Various potions from the lovely @patronuspotions apothecary, all the required textbooks from @mugglemagicdiy & @curiosasociety, and of course I would never forget my scarf so I can flaunt my #hufflepuffhousepride!⁣

A few notes about this custom typeface:⁣
· loosely based on #AbrilFatface and #PlayfairDisplay (I sure love my serifs, heh)⁣
· compared to the typeface I designed for #36daysoftype, this one has a higher x-height and thicker stroke width for a more playful & fun style and maintains similar round terminals, as seen on the letter "r"
· I haven't figured out what to call it yet. Maybe something magical?
