I'm a regular submitter using a completely different style. This is definitely a leap for me because I've never really done a design that focuses mainly on typography and I also think this is the most minimalist design I've ever done (I'm know for my detailed, complicated illustrations).
The inspiration for this? I wanted to do a design that celebrates the here and now, to recognize the importance of today. After all, yesterday is gone and we can't see into the future, so all we really have is today.
