As a Christmas present for my daughter and her fiance', I created a "spa sign". They had recently purchased a hot tub and wanted a place indoors to hang their towels. She wanted a sign that would hang above the hooks themselves. So, I took the idea and ran with it.
I did share some of my "design concept" with them to ensure I was on the right track, but after I got that approval, the color scheme and additional artwork were a surprise. I ran several fonts by them, as well as several "names". They chose the Martin Resort & Spa.
