Sailing Light


My good friend and his wife just had a baby. Although we don’t keep in touch that much, I am trying to make an effort to still maintain a relationship with people I was close friends with.

Their son’s name is made out of the Japanese kanji for sailing or flying and light or radiance. What a great and artistic name! So with that, I used gradated circles to give the sense of either the gentle sea or sky and a glowing bright light. Just a quick and simple typography exercise with concept and shapes.

Welcome to the world, Kouki!
