Project Description

Once upon a time I had written to a girlfriend in a text message "Your hugs are like drugs... and I'm an addict". It always stuck with me, and I was proud of the sentiment. Even though it didn't quite work for me in the long run, I thought others could benefit from it.  So I decided to turn it into a card. I wanted it to feel very personal and handmade, so I did all the type by hand, and kept it kind of loose, almost messy. My goal with each card was to make whoever got it feel really good.

Production Lesson(s)

This was a pretty straight forward project. If I had to change one thing I would like to have used a higher line screen for the printing.”
