Birthday Invitation

This invitation was based on Blue Danube china. I grew up with that china, and was always impressed with its ornate patterning. Having a party as an adult in the house I grew up in is a bit weird, and I wanted to reference my childhood in a way that would make sense to the guests. It’s a bit lame and admittedly amatuerish to put your own birthday invitation in your portfolio, but this is actually some of the stuff I enjoy designing most.
