In addition to flowers and warm weather, spring also means that it’s graduation time! Heather is preparing to graduate from Portland State University and designed an announcement to help commemorate the big day. Heather worked with Chelsea from Field Trip Studio for letterpress printing in two colors – resulting in a fun and spring-fresh announcement inspired by Heather’s love of print design.
From Heather: The inspiration for the design of my announcements were my love of print design, as well as the chance to nerd-out over my favorite design things. I wanted to do some hand-drawn type, but didn’t want to draw out the entire piece and so settled on just my name, to really make it pop!
A few super nerdy details: all sides have rules on them—the left and right sides have inches, while the top and bottom are in picas. Also included are my favorite tools from the Adobe Design Suite, a command + n to symbolize the new chapter I’m starting, and some great little circles (including the ellipse tool cursor in the center) on the corners. Nerd alert!
Thanks so much Heather – congratulations on your upcoming graduation!
