Recently I designed this Winter ONEderland Snowflake Invitation for a sweet client’s baby’s first birthday party. One of my favorite parts about starting this little graphic design business is designing custom invitations, art prints, and other paper products for clients.
When someone comes to me with a custom request, they usually have an meaningful idea that they are excited about. They trust me enough to execute that idea. That trust is not something I take lightly – each and every custom request I receive is an honor! I’ve been wanting to share a little more of the stories behind my designs with you. I’m going to start sharing The Story Behind the Design on a more regular basis. Truly, it is these stories that makes the designs come to life and create meaning for my clients and my work!
This Winter ONEderland Snowflake Invitation is dear to me because I first met the client and her adorable daughter at church in the small town where we used to live. Shortly after meeting her, she asked me to create a custom Lucky Seven birthday party collection for her daughter’s 7th birthday that was on St. Patrick’s Day.
Later, the client got engaged and asked me to design her modern navy and yellow wedding invitation. It was one of the first few wedding inviations that I designed. I’m not going to lie, I felt a little bit nervous undertaking a wedding invitations at that time. Just knowing that a client wanted me to design something for her special day was exciting and daunting all at once. Of course, giving her an invitation worthy of her big day was the only goal!
When she contacted me last month with a request to make her new baby’s first birthday invitation, I was thrilled to be asked to create another custom invitation for her. I love the preppy, modern style that the client wants to incorporate into all of her invitations. This sweet, navy, light blue and light gray snowflake invitation is no exception. Being a very small part of client’s important celebrations is what I cherish the most about this business.
Hope this sweet baby boy has a ONEderful first snowflake birthday party! Happy Birthday sweet Henry!
