Seven months into her pregnancy, Elly and her partner Arjen approached me to make the cards to announce the arrival of their beautiful baby Sue. Not only to illustrate the front and design the back of the cards, but also the screen print the cards by hand!
For the illustration, they wanted to show their family of (now) four, and their happy and positive spirit. That’s why we went with the balloons, spelling out Sue’s name. Her arrival is a little party after all. Out of several combinations and testprints combining pink, white, gold an/or mint green, Elly and Arjen chose for red and gold. As Elly is of Chinese heritage, these colours represent fortune, joy and happiness to her. Making the cards even more personal.
