Thanks so much for the nice comment, and for pointing out the misspelling! I get so wrapped up in the lettering, that I forget letters. How embarrassing! Thanks, Laura!

Hey, Laura. Thanks for your comment last night. I did try the contextual alternate for the s in "save." I hope it doesn't drive you too crazy seeing your type used this way but I actually prefer it this way for this design. I like having "date" have the bulk of the visual interest.
