    In the wake of the USPS potentially going bankrupt and subsequently affecting the 2020 Presidential Elections, I decided to buy stamps and send postcards to friends and family. Almost 300 people shared their addresses with me on Instagram (way more than I had anticipated) so I decided to create my own set of nine postcards.

    Designed during one late night after work, printed by Moo on an impressively strong and durable paper with silky, soft touch, matte coating finish on both sides; and using nine completely different and unique typefaces, the set has resulted in an elevated but clean design. With the core message of letting you, and the world know, that while we are going through difficult times at the moment, it will be okay in the end. And it is equally fair to not be okay at this time. You do you.
