Here is a piece I recently finished for the U of M. It is an invite to their first annual Women's Clinic to help raise awareness about Tiger football. It was quite a challenge to bring a little femininity (say that one five times fast) to a sport that has a largely masculine following. I think overall it turned out very well, as the sans-serif fonts standout on the faded flourished background. I wanted the background to resemble one of those designs you see on purses and handbags, but I didn't want it to be too bold as it would clash with all the information they were wanting to get across. I used the inline font for the title and date to give a little bit of flair to them. I also made them both a shade of pink to highlight them as the main info of the entire piece.
