In my group of friends we all have a something to contribute to our group. I try to contribute with art, anything that I can help a friend out with I will attempt. I was recently asked to design some monograms for a wedding of one of my girlfriends.
Here are some example ones that I did (keep in mind I did the design for "her" taste might not quite be the same as mine but she loved them!) in the end when it comes to design that is what it is all about...pleasing the client.
