baby boy's 2nd birthday invitations

These cards were created for a baby boy's construction themed 2nd birthday party. There needed to be a design for both the invitations and the thank you cards. The theme was construction, but the design needed to be modern, somewhat simplistic, and colourful.

The design created uses a clean white background to allow the fun fonts and colours to stand out and to keep them looking modern. Custom graphics were made to add an element of personalization and detail that makes the construction theme obvious.  The custom graphics were repeated on the back of the cards to create a pattern.

 

The fonts chosen were meant to appear gritty and hint at common signs seen on construction sites. The colour yellow was used to invoke the common emotions felt with yellow like 'caution', 'cheerful', and 'happiness'.
