Musical virtuosity, don’t we all strive to achieve it? Don’t we dream of becoming a piano, vocal, violin, or other type of musical virtuoso? This design simply and perfectly captures that dream, with a motivational quote to keep you going through the toughest practice sessions. The design simply reads: Become a virtuoso or die trying. The phrase reminds me of the words of Isaac Stern , when approached by a woman at a concert. She said “Oh, I’d give my life to play like you!”, to which he replied “Lady, that I did!”. This will make a great gift for any aspiring musical virtuosi, and the bold, simple typographic design looks great on a wide variety of products. I hope the design inspires you to reach higher and higher into your musical development.
Music is a huge influence in my life. Every since I was a kid, I’ve been enamored with it. I played electric guitar during my teen years and early twenties, and started taking piano lessons around 2009. It’s hard to overstate how important music is to me, and it definitely shows on my designs. Classical music is specially important, as are great composers like Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninov, and many others. Whether using the musical symbols to create a pattern, or simply creating a typographic design urging new musicians to do their best in their own musical careers, I simply love using music as a muse.
