Equestria Postal Service Ad - Valentine's Day by space-kid Equestria Postal Service Ad - Valentine's Day by space-kid
So, being a week before Valentine's day, I thought I'd do something fun. Here's Everyone's Favorite Mail Pony, with 50s advertisement kind of look to it. Typography is quite a fun thing to fiddle with, I find.
Oh, and thanks for all the love for the original illustration!

"I swear, I sent you a card, and a box of chocolates, and a bouquet of flowers! They must have gotten lost in the mail!"
"What, all three of them? How likely is that? Just admit that you forgot!"
Thanks, Derpy. :thumbsup:

Oh, my bad. Though, thanks still for the link. At least they had sourced it back to me. If there was no source at all, well then I'll be concerned.

:iconderpy-hooves:Oh my! Your'e right!
I really like that style back in the 50-60s. It's so, in a word... retro. It's not particularly super, design-wise; but maybe the simplicity is what gets to me. And how they throw so much info in your face, is another funny point.

You can totally do it! I just looked at the design style of the times and then tried to replicate the same thing on photoshop. i.e. The slanted script font (very iconic) and then the block of serif information blurb thing. There are a lot of good designer fonts for free on the internet (e.g. fontsquirrel.com); way better than default windows ones. Have a go at it!

A lot of the FOE fanworks have that aesthetic, much like Fallout itself.
