As a little wedding gift I wrote out a portion of the traditional Vedic wedding vows (traditionally spoken in Sanskrit but often now recited in English).
It was a quick project, rushed and finished on the plane, so I wasn’t totally happy with the execution. I enjoyed the opportunity to play with words, lettering and balance in design though, and hope to do more of the same in future.
“I am the Sky, you are the Earth; I am the Seed, you are the Bearer; I am the Mind, you are Speech; I am the Words, you are the Melody. I knowingly respect you as you knowingly respect me. May we remain together, listen to joyous sounds together. May we always experience well-being, and, speaking loving words, may we remain together for a hundred autumns.”
