This past summer Adam and I went on a road trip to my family farm. My great uncle currently leaves there and owns some peacocks. This is the original picture I took of one of his peacocks. It inspired the idea of showing your true colors and being your true self.
From that idea, I found this Dr. Seuss quote: “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” Isn’t it lovely?
I played with font types, font sizes, and font spacing. These are the resulting beauties.
I thought the font was too small so I made it bigger.
I also like the idea of the font being hard to read – like a mirage of thought.
I researched to find out which Seuss book this quote came from and it seems to be a mystery. Many sources site the quote (“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”) to Seuss, but there is a similar quote by Bernard Baruch which states “Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” Anyone have insight over this mystery?
Whatever the source, they are words to remember.
