Blame It On the Altitude
My ode to Denver, the Mile High City. You get winded faster, tipsy faster, and personally, all-around loosey goosey. On a recent trip, every time someone had a brain fart, stuttered, or tripped, we just blamed it on the a-a-a-a-a-al-ti-tude!
First iteration. In the beginning, I only pictured this as a lettering project, but it seemed like it was missing something, so I tried adding some illustration in the next iteration.
Different lettering for "altitude" with Rocky Mountains as an added illustrative element. I used the colors of the Colorado flag, but they vibrated a bit.
The final image, with an active color palette.
