    This poster is the epitome of everything I love about typography, and you’ve hit the nail on the head. You’re sensitivity to the typeface really shows, and you’re alignment is simply admirable. This is the kind of work I live for, and drive for. If only I have the equipment you have, I would be in my element, a printer just doesn’t cut it for me! Thank you for this piece of work, and all you’re work is stunning, I wish you a prosperous future, as you really are a cut above the rest. Thank you again x
