my new mission of today is to produce an invite for a 2 year olds birthday party for a good friend of mine. i have found this a really enjoyable challenge as it is not really something i have done before.
henry is obsessed with jcb diggers so i started with doing some simple line drawings of good ol' jcb diggers...
one of the requests was to keep colour blocking to a minimum due to printing costs. i wanted to keep my style in the invites whilst having henry's personality with fun happy font.
i kept to primary colours but made focus on the classic jcb yellow and included a fun photo of henry.
i went for graph paper in the background to break up the plain background and give a bit more of a 'boyish' theme.
i did two designs with the same imagery which i think worked really well, (obviously ive blocked out the party details as we don't want a rave turning up at the party!)

Well I have just got back from New Designers in London and it has been an absolutely fantastic week! My cards featuring my dog illustrations and hidden pop-ups had quite a bit of interest, which I was so pleased about. At first I only kept them in my portfolio but liv persuaded me to put them out in my show so I was lucky she did!
Staffs uni in general got a great deal of interest as a whole so fingers crossed we all go on to long and happy careers!
