When Christopher asked me to design something special for his personal stationery, I knew something ordinary just wouldn't do. The original idea was to incorporate the phrase "It's later than you think" in a tattoo-style format, but he came up with a better idea (and a challenge for me.)
He asked me to replicate his late mother's handwriting style based on two samples he provided, a challenge to be sure! But after I completed that challenge successfully, I wanted to set it off in a big way. So I started designing a few options for him of varying styles and what he chose was this one – what I fondly called the "go big or go home" option.
The design came together beautifully. And to top it off, I designed matching envelope liners to complete the look. What I wish you could feel is the paper – it's the most delicious-feeling, toothy Crane's Lettra (and the envelope feels just as awesome!)
