recent work // curious lawson invites

Last year, a sweet little boy named Lawson turned one. To celebrate, Lawson’s parents threw him a party inspired by Curious George. His mother, Jeanie, contacted us to design + letterpress print his birthday invitation.

She loved the invitations we designed + printed for our little Em and wanted something similar in the style of his party. His party was not just Curious George but a vintage take on the classic stories. Rustic red, pale blue, navy and a cheerful yellow made up the party’s color palette.

Like Em’s “year of firsts” certificate, Lawson’s first year achievements were highlighted. His foot + hand print were letterpress printed true to size. At birth he was a tiny fellow, and his feet were only 1 3/4 inches long.

Did you notice what his first food was? Bananas! I got a good chuckle out of that.

We made the “year of firsts” card a different size from the actual invite and bound them together with yellow twine. And finally, a two color, letterpress printed, wraparound mailing label was affixed to each pale blue, open ended #10 envelope.

Happy birthday Curious Lawson! We hope you went bananas and had more fun than a barrel of monkeys at your party!
