This is the design that kicked it all off and made me want to create Reality Sox. Not because it was amazingly good or anything, but because when I thought up this quote a door was unlocked and phrases and arty ideas started exploding in my head.
With all these ideas fizzing in my brain I realised I could do so much more than photos.
I had been wanting to create a platform for my photos for a long time, but I didn’t really know how to do it, having other ideas gave me the kick to getting started. After a bit of research I settled with society 6.
I started with this piece to break myself in, which I admittedly did want to word in a less PC fashion, (‘Now Go Away’ is phrased more politely than planned).
However, just this simple design threw up questions, such as do people prefer white text on a black background or vice versa?
I have to admit on hedging my bets, I created one with black text on a white background too, but prefer I white text on a black background.
I’m not sure whether everyone prefers the darker option though.
For me lots of text on a word doc black text on white is better, but for some reason for short pieces like this I like it the other way round.
Do you prefer lighter or darker colours when it comes to text?
