I’m very proud of this project. A friend’s son is getting married soon, and I was commissioned to design the invitations for the rehearsal dinner, which will be held at a lovely little club right on the beach at Dam Neck.
First, I created a colored pencil drawing of a sun rising over a tumultuous sea:
I scanned and edited the image a bit to make it just right, then I did the layout and typography for the invitations in Adobe Illustrator:
We had the invitations printed by Business Document Solutions – great folks to work with, by the way, if you’re in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area. My client was so tickled with the final product that he had me design directional placards and seating cards for the event with the same sunset image!
Feedback, please – what do you think?
