Leon Turns One! Part 1

As an invitation designer, I couldn’t not letterpress my first babies’ first birthday invitation!

With that reasoning, I went to town designing a very un-classic, un-restrained, illustrated Retro invitation, inspired by Leon’s natural Rockabilly curls. Intricate¬†gingham patternwork framed a header with an illustrated baby boy remarkably similar to the birthday boy. Quirky 50′s drawings, alongside typography of the same period, introduced the fun-filled picnic party to come.

I also went a little overboard with the party itself. Part 2 to follow tomorrow…
