A great work of vintage inspired custom lettering. The chosen colors and vivid type make this a warming piece of typography.

A Smile From You

This line comes from an old school track by Bill Withers called "Make A Smile For Me". I discovered it through one of my favorite hip hop groups (Panacea) when they sampled this in a song called "Treasure Hunt". I like the idea of this line and I think there are very few people who can make the blues go away simply with a smile, so if you have one of these people in your life – hold on to them! As far as the visual aesthetic to this piece goes, it was inspired by my obsession with vintage circus posters.
