Lindsay from McMillian + Furlow sent over the invitations that she recently designed for a BBQ celebrating her father’s 70th birthday. Lindsay was inspired by her father’s favorite hobby – fly fishing – creating a type-driven postcard invitation with an illustrated salmon fly. Such a fun way to celebrate such a monumental milestone!
From Lindsay: In honor of my dad’s monumental birthday, my family is hosting a small BBQ and celebration. “Big Mauro” is wildly passionate about fly fishing, and he ties all his own flies. With salmon season approaching, I chose to illustrate a fly meant to catch salmon as the main graphic in the postcard design.
The beautiful combinations of color and texture within each unique fly make them single works of art on their own. I married the illustration with a blend of the modern Bodoni typeface and the simply gorgeous sans-serif Proxima Nova, all in black and white. I love how the bold, dynamic typography contrasts the textures and softness in the illustrated fly.
Thanks so much Lindsay!
