Nice work Christelle. I am not sure how to explain that clearly in english but to me it is not easy to distinguish letters from ornaments. Maybe I would do "bolder" letters and try to have only ornaments as extensions of these letters. For example, the small one on the top roght of the ampersand should be integrated with the next letter ( a J ? )
Thanks for your comment Francis.
This was the main difficulty of the job: to make the eye focus on the letters rather than the ornaments. Also, I needed to keep the symmetry (which was really uneasy because on one side I have one letter, and on the other side I have two A and JF), and that's why the little ornament above the ampersand and the J is not integrated in the letter.
The next letter is a J followed by a F… I think that's kind confusing. That's why I'm expecting comments ;)
Damn that's difficult to explain in English ^_^
Is it A & H? I can read it fine, but maybe because I'm a designer. One idea is to slightly add a subtle color change on the letters, and the color will gradiate to the gray color of the rest of the ribbon ornaments.
It's A & JF… that's a fail ^^
Thanks for the ideas, I'll try that.
I think most people will read it because it's a wedding invitation (and they know who's the sender) but I want to do things right.
Thanks again Inka
Very elegant lettering. Like Francis said, a better differenciation of letters and ornament is advisable, maybe by applying some reflexion and modeling on the letters (lighting, shades etc) and not the rest.
I'm also quite unsure about the colors, it gives strange vibration on my screen...
But all in all, it's a very good start, i'm waiting for the rest !
(put**n dur l'anglais)...
Gabriel, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'll try different colors too. No time yet but soon enough, I hope.
Rudy, thanks! :)
