-- UPDATE: I have received some excellent entries so far. The best have used hints of London in motifs in non obvious way, coupled with creative organic fonts and used colours for impact. They have differentiated the 'verse' 'chorus' and 'bridge' words and text blocks through different colours, fonts, or caps and have created points of interest in the piece, all while creating a clean and easy to read finish. Good Luck! --
This is an anniversary present for my wife. At our wedding, I composed and performed a song for her - I would like the lyrics of the song designed on an A4 size sheet which I intend to print and frame and give to her as a present, and display in my studio.
The lyrics need to be easily readable but I'm using your design service as a would like something a bit more creative than just 'Microsoft word' text on a page...I can do that. Her style is not typically 'wedding' - so I don't want it to be cursive fonts and flowers, or love hearts and crosses. Something classy and modern but edgy enough to portray the fact that it’s a love song. Organic and handwritten fonts (but not formal). The song is the story of how we met (in London) when we were in our late twenties. The song title is 'Bow Lane' which is a street in central London where we discovered our love. I don’t want any reference to the fact that it’s an anniversary present in the text. Just the title, and the verse, chorus and bridge lyrics.
I was at loss I was at leave
With all that I know
So tired of repeats
I had nothing to show
Then a mane and a mystery changed history and finally let me go
Because there was you
In the cold of London’s winter
In the shadow of your ghost
On that old Bow Lane
Is where I loved you most
Well the flames of the King’s reflect in your eyes
The red in the wine didn’t disguise
Under the hearts of past masters we talked the hours away
And changed our views
These city walls can’t hold back my love
Every street a scene of you
If these city walls come crumbling down
Baby stand aside and let them fall
Otherwise be creative as you want with the design's colour scheme (although darker London winter colours would be preferred) and fonts. I'm open to the idea of borders too. A bit of artwork would be great, but nothing cheesy like 'Big Ben'. I'm all for subtle and understated.
