Superhero Birthday Invitations

28 Jul 2013 9:00am

My very great friend Jackie — whom I have known even before the days of high school — celebrated her sons 3rd birthday last month. (Happy belated birthday, superhero!) I had previously created his 1st birthday invitations (as re-capped in this Design Rewind) and being that she was short on time last year, she did an email invitation for his second birthday. Jackie will have to print and tape that one in the scrapbook… because from now on there will be no more email invitations as she confirmed that I am now their family stationer! So excited. Nothing beats snail mail!

This year, I created a custom hand drawn superhero character of her birthday boy, saving the city of San Antonio, Texas! Printed on bright white linen stock, with a metallic Leisure Blue backer + Cayenne Orange matte envelopes.

From Jackie, “These are the most awesome invitations that ever lived. (My son) looked at them and said, “Coooool!”

Playground Journal Cover Concept

23 Jul 2013 1:02pm

About two months ago, my friend Linh mentioned to me that maybe I would like to take part in a Global Talent Search to be internationally represented by Lilla Rogers. This could open Architette Studios for commissions worldwide in editorial, graphic design, corporate and advertising projects. Well of course! Sounds like a great opportunity. There will be a series of “project assignments” of which each will be critiqued by an (amazing!) panel of judges. Just for my work to be seen by these great powerhouses makes my day!

Assignment: Design a journal book cover as if Paperchase were my client. Having been a longtime fan of Paperchase products, and having a 13+ volume of journals in which I have “documented” my life since 1996, I felt this was something I connected with right away.
Theme: Old-fashioned Playground Items. We all have memories of our favorite playground equipment. I got started by polling my friends about what their favorite playground equipment was growing up, quizzed my family about their favorites, wrote down my own favorites… and did some research on vintage playgrounds.

Let the sketching begin!

Hopefully I will be able to update after August 1st when they have chosen the 50 designers that get to move on to the next round. Wish me luck!

Corvette Feel Better Soon Card

22 Jul 2013 9:00am

Upon seeing this design, one might think it was for someone who loves Corvettes, and is not feeling well. It is sort of the opposite. In this case, this custom design I created as a “Feel Better Soon” card for a couple of my Corvette-loving friends whose “baby” was sick… a 2008 C6 generation red Corvette that was involved in a car accident. (A car accident that was not their fault by the way.) Being their appointed “family stationer”, I couldn’t help but feel their pain as well. Feel better soon “Bluesmn”!

I had a lot of fun creating these custom Sweet 16 Birthday party invitations. It is no secret that the color palette of  Tiffany’s Blue + bright white is my favorite! These are modern, classic, timeless… and just the right amount of playful vs. sophistication for a Sweet 16. Not to mention… we have the New York City skyline in there! What more could you ask for?

Custom Project Graduate Invitations

28 Jun 2013 9:00am

Last month, I had the honor of creating these custom Project Graduate Invitations for my friend Caitlin. To create the silhouette, I traced a photo of her that her mother had taken at her Homecoming… and added in the motion of raising the diploma in triumph!

Silhouette In Progress for Project Graduate by Architette Studios

After adding in the notations, and some clever bits of information (some of which I had been told when I graduated!), Project Graduate (female/girl) was born. (Of course, I had to create a Project Graduate (male/boy) counterpart!)

For this custom Graduation Invitation, we added all the ceremony details inside the card. Perfection! ConGRADulations Caitlin!

Last month, I had one sleepless night… and the result… ? I sketched a bunch of new Construction Series designs… and notated some that had been long overdue. (For examples, Project Bicycle has been something I had drawn almost two years ago… and Project Beer Mug from just as long ago too!) More coming soon in the theme of buildings and monuments too… as shown here with Project Eiffel Tower.
