alternate title: cwedit cards
I got this nifty credit card swiping device that you attach to an iPhone (squareup.com
) so now I can easily/conveniently accept credit cards at the con!! Hooray!!
It came highly recommended by a couple of my friends, so hopefully I'll have good results with it, too!
Anyhoo, upon receiving it in the mail, I got the idea to make a cute little "I ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS NOW!!" sign. I'm still not sure how the actual sign will look (probably just boring text. haha NO TIME FOR ANYTHING ELSE
) but I had fun making these cutiefied credit card logos!
I SPENT WAAAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THIS
the actual shapes of the cards were not the issue, but rather, since I wanted to use my own font and was still not finished with the bold/fat version, I had to plump up/make most of the letters for this x___x however! at least in good news now I have MOST of the alphabet done for this version of my font! yaaay Weird sidenote: While creating this pic, I came upon a STARTLING REVELATION IN KAWAII STUDIES (what) And that is: ITALICIZED TEXT MAKES "CUTE" FONTS LESS CUTE Shocking news, I know. hahah But yes, more studies need to be done, but I came to this realization for the first time, when I was doing the lettering for the MasterCard logo, and noticed that when I slanted/italicized my font (as that is how the original is [link]), it went from looking cute (imo) to generic and UNCUTE (again, imo). It was a very interesting transformation! I'm not exactly sure why this is the case, but just off the top of my head all I can think is that SO many popular logos use italicized text, that maybe by association it makes it look generic. I dunno I will let you know upon future experiments!
agghhh still too much preparation. FOUR DAYS LEFT AHHHHH x___x
