Same invite but different colours. I made a bright and girlie invitation with focus on the gorgeous photo of Maddison, looking like she is in deep thoughts...

The brief was to create two invitations for the couple, one very feminine and the other very masculine. I also had to ensure I was highlighting the couple's personal taste and preferences so that it would be easily recognisable by their friends: Jenny loves shoes, and Michael loves cigars. While the invitations were made to look significantly different, they still wanted a similar style. The gradient background, the body-text type, and the vector graphics became the common ground for the designs.

Mellie is turning 30 and she's doing it in style! I looked at rock concert posters and flyers to get a suitable look for her invites, as she wanted something funky. I know she likes her music, so I created a bold, rock-styled card with her photo in the background.
Cooper's mum wanted to make a train-cake, so she wanted a train on the invitation. She gave me a couple of photos, and as he wasn't giving his best smiles, I had to tweak it in Photoshop- the result was a cheeky little smile after all. The result is a fun and bright card and a very cheeky little man!
Well done to Stewart for making it to 90- what an amazing effort! I was given a bunch of photos from his grand-daughter, and each and every single one showed a man with a great sense of fun! That's probably the secret to a long and happy life? In the end they chose the top invite, with a "classic" Stewart-moment caught on film.

My former employer is arranging a winery-tour for the staff, and I got to design the invitations. It was the first time I had to follow a creative brief, and I felt very nervous, but thankfully the creativity kept flowing and they approved (and loved!) the top one.
