The Bright Side of Life

A happy typography print for a friend

I was asked to create a typographic print based on the word's of the Monty Python song 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life'.

The print would be in memory of a friend's father who passed away recently and would sit proudly in her new kitchen (after getting through three frames and an indutrial drill ). I was of course, honoured to create this for her and it was a great print to work on.

'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' is the classic 1979 song by Eric Idle created for the iconic Monthy Python's 'Life of Brian'. Since it's creation, the song has evolved into our popular culture and is now known and sung the world over at weddings, fiunerals and any other gathering that involcves drink and singing in a human circle!

This A3 print uses a range of fonts from the Lost Type Co-op and is printed on 160gsm white stock.
