kathy series

this style of lettering is called the button alphabet. peter thornton invented it. louie lemoine teaches it. it's lots of fun. a little hard to read, but perfect for names. design principle...use the minor colors for the name and accent with the brightest color. i should do a version of this with the name in red to see if it looks boring. it wouldn't be bad. it just wouldn't be as fun. using just a touch of the red makes the eye hop back and forth between the elements.
