Don’t tell me the moon is shining, show me the glint of light on broken glass.
This quote, attributed to the great Russian writer Anton Chekhov, is in essence the advice he gave to his brother on how to describe nature. The quote served as the inspiration for the design you see below, showcased on just a couple of products. Remember that you can see the whole product line for the Don’t tell me the moon is shining design here.
More about the Don’t tell me the moon is shining design:
I love how Chekhov powerfully paraphrases the essence of genius writing. If you look at the design from a distance, you might even miss the quote I’m alluding to here, but it is right there in the edge of the full moon.
I wanted the gorgeous image of the moon to be the central piece in this design. The golden coloration creates a lush, fantastical atmosphere. This is exactly the atmosphere that great writing puts you in. A design of the moon alone could work for this design, but I decided to include the Chekhov phrase for good measure. I hope this design makes the user ponder upon what great writing is, and how to improve his own, if he is a writer. If not, it’s just a beautiful piece of advice, on the fringe of a gorgeous image of the full moon.
I particularly like how the design looks on the laptop sleeve and the poster. Don’t you think it would look amazing as a decorative piece in a bedroom? Which product do you think it looks best on? Let me know in the comments section!
