I’ve been asked to make invitations recently, one being for a wedding and one for a graduation party. These were fun to work on because the clients literally told me to just “go for it.” However, I am a huge proponent of creating with a purpose, so for me to create “whatever I wanted” wasn’t exactly my tactic. I met with each client in person to discuss them as people. I wanted to know more about their story so that could shine through in the invitations.
I designed each invitation with a quick turn-around, and virtually no edits from these clients. I guess they were serious when they told me to design what I wanted without much guidance. However, in both cases – the clients were extremely happy with the results! Which in turn, made me extremely happy.
Graduation Party Invitation
This invitation was designed for a high school graduate who was on her way to college in the fall. I was asked to design an invitation with the photographs they provided, as well as making a mention of it being a conjoined celebration with her best friend. Her invitation is shown above.
This invitation was designed for an older couple who has been together for many, many years. They’ve built a life together in their home, with all of there children. Since this was both of their second marriages, they planned to host a big party in their backyard – nothing too formal. This was intended to be a celebration of their love and commitment to one another. Here is their invitations that mailed out:
