60th BIRTHDAY INVITE

Completed April 2014

CHALLENGE

Invite family and friends to my father's surprise 60th birthday party.

BACKGROUND

I'm the Jonovski family resident designer.

SOLUTION

An invitation that doubled as a postcard. No envelopes necessary—Mom liked that one.

CREDITS

Art Direction: My mom and siblings (pretty much)

SPOILER

We didn't actually have the party. Mom spilled the beans early and Dad decided he'd rather have a new grill.

Final design

To honor the guest of honor, I scanned dear ol' dad's college graduation photo, played a few PhotoShop and Illustrator tricks and used the pattern as the backdrop on the front of the invitation. The colors and typeface choices are meant to capture a "meeting of the times," the past with the present.
