I’ve always been a big fan of reggae music, and recently I was lucky enough to see the reggae band Iration live at a local music festival. I’ve always liked their music, but seeing them in-person gave me a whole new appreciation for their work.
Also in attendance was talented designer and hand-letterer (is that a thing?) Kellie Martin, who got inspired by their performance and decided to hand-letter some lyrics from Iration’s song ‘Falling’. I loved the typography so I loaded it into Illustrator, vectored it, and added some beachy vibes to the piece. It also gave me a chance to try out my Canon Pixma Pro-100 printer, which did an amazing job faithfully replicating the piece onto a 13×19 poster.
