Julie Andrews plays the “cheeky” Mary Poppins so well. Even though she plays a nanny just like she does in The Sound of Music, the two characters are very different. Mary Poppins has a cold outer shell but is sweet deep down. Maria, her character in Sound of Music has a much softer personality.
Both movies and characters are phenomenal, and even though Mary Poppins is stern (never cross!), we get to see how the Banks children warm her heart.
I love my first Mary Poppins inspired design, you could say it’s Practically Perfect in Every Way. So I wanted to borrow from that iconic measuring tape aesthetic because it so strongly conveys nostalgia for the movie.
I was hoping that there would be common letters in both designs, but all I had to work with was a script letter ‘Y’ which I re-used. However the rest was hand lettered to resemble the original hand lettering the best I could.
