Design notes: Psalm 126:3

Posted by Shopify API on

Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us! What joy!
Psalm 126:3

Thoughts on the verse

This verse is pulled from a Psalm of rejoicing when Israel's people are returning to their homeland after decades of captivity in a foreign land. (Give it a read if you have a moment!) They are clearly celebrating and so very grateful for what God has done for them. This choice of gratitude is one I work to make every day and I love that this art serves as reminder to give praise to our generous God.

Thoughts on the design

Often when I start my sketching, I make decisions about what words from the verse should be emphasized. With this art, I deliberately chose "Yes" and the phrase "What joy!" Because of these larger words, the art can be experienced and read twice, first at a distance and then closer when you can read the entirety of the verse. Once I realized that I wanted to emphasize those three words, it was natural that this piece evolved to be purely typographic in design.

Thoughts on type

The type is set in Dita Condensed. I appreciate the friendliness that the rounded edges bring to this font. The message is joyous and celebratory so I wanted the type to embody a light cheerfulness.

Thoughts on color

Such a simple design lended itself really well to simply swapping out the background color. I very much enjoyed choosing a range of bright colors, jewel tones, and even a neutral solid black. I love how flexible this art is because of the multitude of color options. There's truly an option for every interior!
