I've been busy designing graduation invites the last few weeks. It kinda snuck up on me this year since I've been off the radar for a few weeks during our move. Anyways, here's a sample from one of my 2012 grads, Mitch, featured in a post a few days back to help motivate and get your own party ideas a-rockin'. Mitch works for his uncle, a totally cool and innovative builder, which I also had the privilege of photographing last summer. (see their pics here) For the design I decided to pair rich colors and blueprint-looking elements while channeling the precise ruggedness of Restoration Hardware ... I'm gonna suggest a eco-friendly matte stock for printing, my personal fav!
I love spring because its the time of year when I get to see a whole season of hard work come together in some awesome photo displays. I had the opportunity of working on a few graduate party displays and I think they are gonna rock your socks off! (If you are still wearing socks in May!)
P.S. 2012 Grads, Its time to get started on your party designs! If you haven't done so already e-mail me, firstname.lastname@example.org your party details and I can add your designs to my waiting list. Yep, its crazy time already!
P.P.S. Hey Peorians! My friends Deb & Ben at Relics on Adam's Street are hosting a Spring Open House this weekend, March 2nd, 3rd & 4th from 10a.m. to 6p.m. Featuring designs from Sweet Flea and Bittersweet as well as their own vintage treasures (I've heard, first hand, a new collection of awesomeness has just hit the shop straight from NYC) I can hardly wait! I'll be first in line on Saturday, see ya there!
