Newspaper advertisement for the funeral home I live above. Color added in Photoshop just to get a rough idea of what a second color would look like, not sure how I feel about it just yet though.

the color is a little dark for my tastes but a really nice piece.
The lettering looks awesome! Nice work
Lettering is awesome! You're killing it man! #crickets
This is soooo good!
this would be the best newspaper advert i've seen by a country mile!
Maybe a very light grey where the gold is? It'll be cheaper cost for them for BW ad. They have high taste asking you to do the ad :-) It's beautiful and definitely will stand out.
@lisa romero - Agreed, it definitely is a bit dark!
@Inka Mathew - I think that's exactly what I'll end up doing when I take this into PS/AI and just finely halftone those areas. Glad you like it!
This is great. Love the details - the filigree work and dots and such.
Dude! I absolutely love this! Looks great!
I love the color, but I agree it might look best a little lighter. This looks great though bud.
Great looking lettering Jason.
I'd agree with suggestions to make the colour a bit lighter but other than that I love it. Excellent work @Jason
@Stanislav , @Sam Jones , @Ben Pham , @Michael Spitz , @Joshua Boyd - Thanks a lot, glad you all dig it!
@Derrick Castle - Loving your latest block prints man, you're a machine with those.
@Nick Hamm - Thanks! Love the new Citizen stuff by the way.
Hell yeah dude.
There's no doubt that the lettering and design are fantastic!!! But I feel like it had a cheerful feel, which is unexpected for a funeral home. Is it good or bad that it's so out of the ordinary for the industry?
Are you planning on carrying this look into other pieces of their promotional materials?
@Diane Faye Zerr - This is actually the only thing I'm doing for them at the moment. I didn't really see it as cheerful, so much as relative to the time period they established their business (which was in 1881) but I get how it can come off that way. I guess "friendly" isn't such a bad vibe to put out though for this industry.
Hopefully I'll be doing a website and some stationery for them soon as well. Thanks for checking it out!
I'd completely missed this, such a nice piece. I love all the stylistic variations and how it all fits together beautifully. I imagine it'll stand out amazingly in a newspaper, fantastic work!
Thanks @Claire Coullon - I think it's going to be printed next week, I'll rebound it when it comes out with a comparison to the old advertisement.
They give you free reign on this stuff?
