This sticker was created with the intention of answering my own question about the phrase “you are beautiful”. What makes something beautiful? Whatever that may be, it won’t be found on the surface. The layering of the text is meant to imply that what makes one beautiful is more complex than what first meets the eye. The handwritten quality of the text gives the image a truly human and individual feel. The combination of handwritten text and vibrant shades of orange evoke a wild and energetic spirit needed to make one beautiful.
