Guessing Game #3 - Be Inspired with Sandy

I am always excited and inspired by typography. Playing with different font types and different placements of journaling text  often transform a simple design into a truly interesting page for me. These photos, taken at night of Singapore's popular, beach rave party ZoukOut, lack clear details. So I create a design where the photos provide a taste of the party's atmosphere while the eye-catching typography becomes a focal point.

The title treatment come together from a combination of ideas I found on Pinterest. A stencil font to fit in with the urban theme of a dance party. Then I overprint with the same font in outline for a shadow effect which adds the illusion of depth. For some final pizzazz, I split the common alphabet "O" so that it's shared by both words and links them in the title.

    1. That metal heart is very cute. I actually used the back as I wanted a grungier look, the front is a nice mat white finish.

  6. they are pretty fab.
    these tiny ones have a matte finish on the back which I used as it's much easier to photograph a layout without pinpoints of light reflection.
