    A little bit of type I did in celebration of leaving my full time job to start freelancing - Laura and I are going to the Gold Coast in Australia for a week to rest up before launching into the rest of life! So excited!

    Keen to hear any suggestions to improve my lettering.

    Check out a colour variation on my blog: http://dvclmn.tumblr.com

    What's your process? Sketch > Scan > Vector > Colorize? Love it man.

    Looks great, I really like the color/texture treatment on the blog version too.

    Also, congrats on going freelance!

    I really love the tumblr iteration but both are worth celebrating. My only thoughts on the lettering are in the 'oas' combo- they're getting a little muddy as far as legibility is concerned, but it's not hieroglyphic yet. Have fun on your vaca!!

    I really like what you did with the 's-t' pair, really nice solution and it flows beautifully. Actually the whole thing feels very dynamic, the 'brush' features are a perfect touch.

    I agree with @Danielle on the 'oas' part, to me it's mainly the 'a' that gets lost a bit between the two. If it's end stem/tail was more differentiated, I think it would help a lot. The 'L-d' also seems slightly loose but not so much so that it's really an issue, especially for the casual, spontaneous style.

    Have a great holiday!

    @Nick Winters - I am going to post on my blog in the next couple of days this exact process! Ha all for you man. Hope it helps - check it in a day or two.

    @Elias Stein - Thanks man, it's daunting and scary but I CANNOT wait!!

    @Danielle Evans - You have got to be one of dribbble's most dedicated purveyors of helpful feedback and comments; you are a gem :) Great point, something I will be bearing in mind for my next lettering attempt. Honestly really valuable feedback thanks Dani! And I will enjoy the heck out of it thanks :)

    @Claire Coullon - Not going to lie, my eyes light up when I see a comment from you Claire, because I know it's not just going to consist of "I like it!". Yup, the 'a' definitely needed more of a look-in, doesn't stand out enough against the butt of the 's' (I don't know if 's''s have butts, but you know). Ah do you suppose the l-d could have been closer together? I agree. Thank you for the kind and helpful words!

    Pretty easy to overlook that OAS crowding with the energy (both in form and texture) that the G and T carry through this...you might be one of my new fave follows!

    Biggest blush ever, @Dave. Thanks so much. It's really important to me that I be specific and helpful- I'm thrilled to know I'm achieving some measure of my goals. You deserve it, enjoy yourself!
