The basic design aims to be quite simple, with a single colour and minimal shaping.
The flip tops are a little more involved - the fingers and the thumb both flip back, which I find really useful when moving in and out of cold places, and for fiddling with phones and things. Making the thumb flip back is slightly unusual, but I find you need that too, particularly for smartphones.
I was expecting the openings to be more of a problem - with two layers of rib, they're quite thick, which I thought might be a bit awkward, but seems fine.
"Alle Menschen werden Bruder"
"Und der Cherub steht vor Gott"
I decided that I liked the contrast between the two statements.
The font is aiming to be a little gothic, so the letters are tall, narrow and angular, and the heights are a little quirky.
This was quite fiddly, and took a few goes at it. The problem with writing is that you have to figure out coherent rules and principles for all the letters, so they have a consistent look and feel.
So, I'm pretty happy with how these turned out! I'm enjoying wearing them, and they're a great reminder to be joyful all the time :)
*edit - realised later that I'd missed an "n" from "Menschen". I went back and corrected that, but forgot to take a photo afterwards. Ah well.*
