So I received Kelsey and Mandy’s poster sometime shortly after New Years. And needless to say, 2013–self dubbed “Year of the Marino”– has caught me in a whirlwind in all facets of life. An Uncle to be, 6 months into the new job, now car payments, iPhones, keys to the work place, and soon to be a quarter century old. Hey, what better time than now, lets DO THIS!
The Cincinnati Duo went patterning and had a field day! Let off the filters and formal qualities of what we all may know of in our typical “day” jobs and broke out the colored pencils, stars, fishes, snails, and funny quips throughout the plethora of patterns.
I love the little mentions of “Sexyphone” in the bottom left corner, referencing Courtney’s last poster (utilizing the Saxaphone–good job girls!) and playing with the sound, as well as the shape of the sax right there. I can tell you two just had fun and were probably joking around the whole time, too. I love the care-free aspect, especially since I tend to put too much pressure on myself and work (mini-freak outs anyone?)
More type details that I love. Humorous copy, and loving the “Metallica-esque” letters in ‘Want’ and ‘say’. Ride the Lightning!
Also, it looks like Amber’s handwriting, but there is now a receptacle to transfer our little Love Notes to each other! I love it how every time I get this package of goodies, there’s always stuff that’s completely different. Such is the beauty of this project!
Well done my Cincinnati Comrades! Hell of a fight in a time crunch! I’ll pick up the slack on this end and try and have something out promptly. What it might entail, something “sexy” like stated in the poster? Hmm.. I like pushing the boundaries, but I feel like I’ve already said too much. To the studio it is!
