An Irish Blessing, Journeyfied

Around this time of year, we Journey folks begin to pause and acknowledge how grateful we are to work with each other—and with our clients, supporting the work they’re doing to make the world better.

It’s become a sort of tradition to create something out of this pause. Traditions become traditions (instead of just habits) when they pull us together and invite us into an activity or a process, to commemorate or create.

This year, we’ve taken the words of this well-worn Celtic blessing and visually interpreted them in the ways we’re wont to do sometimes. Because we believe design makes the world go round (or at least a little more beautifully).

"May the road rise up to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
and the rain fall softly upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand."

Over the weeks leading up to Christmas, we’ll be rolling out the artwork over on Instagram and Facebook, with a reminder of the blessing behind it.

May the road rise to meet you indeed. Happy Christmastide.
