The other day I was surfing my favourite websites trying to be inspired when I came across this image that really stood out to me. To be honest, the use of typographic symbols always catches my eye, and I had recently done up a flyer for a client using a left curly bracket { . Then I see this piece that blew my flyer out of the water. They used a right curly bracket } as a die cut for this picture that made the picture so much more interesting. Instead of 4 flat sides, there was now a unique edge that popped out at you. It was also very fitting because it a bit reminiscent of a speech bubble and instead of the writing inside the bubble, the writting is to the side. So the picture pop out at you and now talk to you as well. The writing itself isn’t anything amazing but the way it has been typeset makes it seem important. I can see this treatment being utilized in many different ways from brochures to signs inside a building. Unfortunately I couldn’t find out who made it, which is a shame because I’m sure the rest of their work is just as dandy.


After a few days of this sitting in my inspiration folder I decided to make my own. It’s been really nice since but I made mine on one of the few wet days we’ve had this fall and because I know what always comes with the fall in the lower mainland, I wrote mine this way.
