Sale sign for A Shop Called Moth

This month I used for the first time a laser cutter to create this months sign for A Shop Called Moth. The possibilities with laser cutting are endless and this is something I want to use again and again. I wanted to do something unique, so I opted to handwrite the text, once this was traced and exported into the appropriate artwork file (thanks Emily) we sent it off to the very clever Linda at Melbourne Laser Cutters who laser cut the file out of MDF. The result was so perfectly imperfect, all the bumpy lines from the handwriting and charred edges from the laser, it smells like an bonfire! Next, it was time to wrap each letter in a rainbow of coloured wool, I underestimated just how long this would take, and 6 hours later it was complete and ready to hang.
