Recent Work and Such

August 6th, 2009 @ 2:44 pm by Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

Hello everyone!  I thought I would share a few recent invitations.  I usually dedicate a whole post to a single invitation, but I need to do some catching up over here!

For this baby shower invitation, the client wanted a more modern and clean look for a nursey rhyme themed shower.  I created a custom illustration of a cow jumping over the moon, using this classic rhyme as inspiration.  I used bold colors to keep the invitation modern, plus the mom-to-be is having a boy!  These came out just adorable.  The invitations were gocco screenprinted on a smooth 110lb stock using deep yellow and navy inks, along with pink, green, and coral for the name.

Here is the latest interpretation of one of my favorite invitations to design - the pink peony wedding.  I absolutely love the bright pink ink paired with navy ink.  And how about the envelope?  If I received that in the mail I would go!  The invitations were gocco screenprinted on a smooth 110lb stock with pink & navy inks.

I had to save these for last because they require a bit of explanation.  So, a fish, huh?  Not just any fish, though!  It is a coelacanth.   These lung fish were thought to be extinct since the end of the Cretaceous period until they were discovered off the east coast of South Africa in 1938 {I know, I felt like I was back in elementary school learning about dinosaurs when I did this research}.  Okay, back to the invitations.  The couple wanted to have a coelacanth on their invitations because they both share the dream of someday visiting Madagascar to see this fish.  It is one of the first things they learned about each other and after they did, they knew they were meant to be.  So cute, right?  There is a foot for every shoe… The invitations were gocco screenprinted on a smooth 110lb stock with blue and green inks.

Well, I feel like the last few weeks have been busy and productive, yet I have very little to show for it.  Isn’t that they way sometimes?  I do have a couple more wedding invitations to share with you before the end of the week though.  Until then…

Wow, that fish invitation story is too funny — and cute! I hope the couple shares those deets with their guests!
