Miscellany Monday - Eye Chart Design

So it's time for another Miscellany Monday with Carissa at lowercase letters. For the past year or so, I've always wanted to make an eye chart design, but have never wanted to put the time and effort into making one, until this past weekend. Jordan was working on Friday night and I thought it was the perfect time to dedicated a few hours to making this guy and rewarding myself with a sense of accomplishment that it was done. 

It may not look like it'd take this long to do, but it's tricky. Making sure that in every row the size of the font decreases just enough so that the kearning (spacing) of each individual letter is enough to make each row get progressively smaller and smaller. Well after two hours of working on it, I finally got it right! I seriously love it and am so excited to print it out and put it up :) Since I'm not working at a graphic design company right now, freelance design work has become a great way for me to continue using my design skills so I don't lose them. Also, it's such a great hobby and I love coming up with new designs, especially on a Friday night when I'm bored :)



Now I can't decided between the two colors. I did one in teal just because it's fun and then one in the traditional white and black. Which one do you guys like better? Also, if you're interested in having me make a customized one for you, just email me and we can discuss what exactly you're looking for!

Happy Monday and happy watching The Bachelor tonight, it looks like it's going to be a good one!
