Taking Tango for a tango.

Sometimes I think Tango is not that nice of a font. Bulgy. Clonky. But it has playfulness in it. On Queen’s Day (now King’s Day), there are always great parties in Amsterdam. And to celebrate it a bit more than just for our Queen I created the title: “A Queen In Every Girl”. I like the way things grab into each other. Like a face and body does. When you like someone’s nose it fits with the jaw and eyes. Everybody is a complete fitting whole. A monarch of their own being. To add some more festivity to the design I added the colorfull bubble gum.
