Valentine's Day Cards

(1/2) > >>

Rachael:
Part of me wanted to put this in the Business section, the other part wanted to put it in the Flourish section. But I decided to do it in here to get some constructive criticism on my design. 

I'm doing Valentine's Day cards, but nerd style!! What do you guys think of the rough draft?

Starlee:
This is really neat and pleasing overall...but at the same time, I don't understand. I see the y - o - u at the bottom, although I find some of the flourishes detract from the letter shapes. And what is the flourish supposed to be? I'm sorry, but I've stared and stared and I can't tell...

@RachelS very cute! Maybe spell out "ewe" instead of "you" to make the joke clearer - since it's clear the flourish is a ewe once you get the joke, but otherwise it's not. The placement of the "o" would be better at the bottom IMO (or w in case you change to "ewe"). Nice attempt on the flourish! Have you done animal flourishes before?? I know you were asking for references before. Also, in the final design maybe add some elements to make it clearly valentine-ish.. that will really make it come together.

Actually it's Pikachu lol. The most well known quote from Pokemon is "I choose you!".

I love the idea for adding more Valentine elements to make it pulled together. And no I have never done animal flourishes! This was my first time.
