Modern day matchboxes

Inspired by vintage Eastern European matchboxes, I came up with a series of modern day mottos that might feature on them. Using a very limited colour palette to mimic the limitations of 50s and 60s matchbox printing, alongside with jittery lines and overprints I aimed for as authentic a look as possible.
