Psalm 27:1 Bible Verse Wall Mural: The Lord is my light and my salvation

Hannah's newly renovated apartment had a blank wall, which was initially supposed to house an astronaut wall vinyl as part of the interior design. Unfortunately, it made the surface of the wall pretty sticky and the vinyl did not hold up well. Needless to say, I was super pumped when she reached out to me for a kick-ass hand painted mural. Hannah wanted her home to be a place for God, and requested for the Bible verse "The Lord is my light and salvation" Psalm 27:1 as the centre piece.

We first started out with a mood board for me to pinpoint the kind of aesthetic that tickles her fancy. Other than having a design that is striking and visually impactful like the statement, having an illustration of a lamp to complement the verse was also a key factor in the art direction. She liked how a mix of lettering style adds an additional element of visual interest, so here you can see a use of brush script, sans serif and serif typographic styles. A key consideration was to have the styles complement each other to form a dynamic piece, without having any one given style overwhelmingly compete the other. For an impactful design, I also made sure to rid any negative spaces that were unnecessary so as to enhance the visual weight of the piece.

Overall, the design process (on boarding, consultation, final approval) took around 1 week and the mural took a total of 2 days to be painted. Hannah was a joy to work with and we had delightful conversations. I'm grateful for the opportunity and to have worked with her!
