i should have been working.

Today as I was working on a fun project (more on that very soon), I was listening to A Tribe Called Quest's second album, The Low End Theory.

There's a part in Buggin' Out where Phife Dog says "Styles upon Styles upon Styles is what I have..." and for some reason I saw for a simple typographic poster in my head. So I made it:

But then I didn't like it. It's what I pictured, I guess. The color, layout and style of type* were all pretty much exactly like in my head. But I definitely didn't feel comfortable with it.

Sometimes I get the urge to do flashy, simple designs with bold colors. And I always realize that's not really my deal once I play around with it.

But I didn't want to give up and be a little cry baby who cries like a baby all the way to the baby store when I need new baby dipe-ies for my baby butt. So I thought about what I could do that would make me like it?

So I did this:

And now I feel much better about the whole spur of the moment design-tangent.

And I can return this fresh pack of dipe-ies to the baby store.

*the font I used was created by Jonathan Calugi. Very talented.
