Re: Say My Name


I like it. I always wonder about font usage-- with a design like this it looks like "Grumpy (go away)" would be hand written since it slants across the name tag. The font you chose is definitely in a hand written style but is still noticeably a font-- In making my own designs I always wonder if it bothers people when I use my own hand writing as opposed to a font created based on handwriting. In a situation like this it would technically look more true to life with variation among letters, but to the eye on a t-shirt it might look best as a font. This isn't criticism but curiosity about how you decide when and what fonts to use vs. using your own handwriting.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time doing a handwritten version just for that reason, but ultimately decided my handwriting looked like garbage and went with a font to keep the design clean looking. I have used my own handwriting in designs when the text isn't such a focal point. It just didn't look good on this one.
