Invitations are one of my favorite projects to do. I am not sure if it’s my love of event-planning or just excitement for a new design that makes me happy, but it works. No matter if it’s a corporate party or a my own birthday brunch, let’s get this party started! Click on the thumbnails below for a closer look. I also have electronic invitations in the email section.

When my friend moved from Wisconsin to Idaho, I designed this invitation for her going away party.
New decade, new day, new breakfast recipes! For my 30th birthday, I designed this brunch invitation with my favorite color (orange) and my favorite meal (breakfast) in-mind. This piece was folded with the sunrise peeking out and the yellow piece on top.
My firm frequently hosts dinners and evening events for clients and prospects, and I got to design the invitations. Although I used corporate colors and some of the visual branding elements, I was able to step outside the box a little bit for these events.
[jumpstart 2012 dinner]
For an air service dinner, I created the invitation suite, signage and table tents. Using the solid square frequently seen on collateral, as well as additional corporate colors and fonts, I designed this series for an event for airline representatives, airport managers and future clients.
[aaae 2011 event materials]
During an industry conference, my firm hosted a casual dinner at a local brewery. I decided to have some fun with the idea of beer foam on the invitation, table tents and transportation information cards.
After the bride had purchased an etsy invitation, she wanted additional items designed to match the color palette and fonts of the invitation. I created a logo for the wedding, using the couple’s initials (a happy reminder of a similar piece of art a family friend carved for them), designed a paper fan for use during the reception, and information cards to include with the invitations.
When a friend wanted custom invitations to his graduation ceremony and party, I created this piece using white cardstock and semi-transparent vellum paper.
