CREATING A TYPOGRAPHY DESIGN FROM A FAVORITE QUOTE.

Last night I was restlessly trying to fall asleep when I had a creative idea to make this typography design of a quote. I feel like inspiration can come from anywhere and earlier in the day I was scrolling through Instagram and landed on this sponsored ad by Boheme Boutique. It featured a cute shirt with shapes on it (pictured below). And that inspired this design of this quote I have recently come to love and apply to my life. From there, I went to my handy Pinterest board with color schemes and chose warm, desert tones.

It took me about an hour to get the typography just right, and then I started adding the shapes. I was originally going to just replaces the “O”’s but then I had created a perfect shape to replace the “U”’s as well.

Because of the wonderful Instagram world we all live in, I made one size to share on my creative account but I also made another size to share on my story. The goal is to have people screenshot the quote to use and share (hence, I added my username to that design). This was mostly just for my own fun and creativeness, but I have gotten more compliments on this design than I thought I would so here we are at this blog post. See below for my process, inspiration and final design!

The shirt that inspired the shapes and my color scheme:

I had this idea to have it as a phone screen savor but I ended up liked just the quote better:
