First it was superheroes, now arcade games! Designer Lauren Chism created these arcade game invitations for a 4th birthday party, drawing from the familiar playful elements of Pac-Man to appeal to both adult and kid guests. So fun!
From Lauren: My husband’s cousin, Courtney, asked me to design the invitations for her son Reid’s 4th birthday party earlier this year. She wanted to do an arcade theme and was open to a few arcade games, but I knew it would be tricky getting what there without using specific characters. We went with a Pac-Man inspired concept, which was cute and something adults and children would find fun.
While I wish I could take credit for her clever copywriting, Courtney came ready with such a cute play on words, especially with ‘Reid Level 4’. Sometimes the wording can just make an invitation! Courtney is also a talented photographer and had the cutest photo ever to incorporate on the back of the invitation.
Children’s birthday invitations are always a little challenging for me. Trying to marry my minimalist, typography-inspired design style with a children’s theme can be tricky, but I would call this one a success. I love how they turned out!
