40th High School Reunion Invites

I am really excited about a new order I am working on right now.  This customer contacted me awhile back to design some 40th High School Reunion invitations for Ben Franklin Senior High School.  One of the design elements she requested was to somehow incorporate columns into the design.  The school had some pretty beautiful architecture, and keeping with that was very important to her.  It was a challenge, but I was up for it!

My original idea was to try to replicate the building's columns and frame the invitation with them.  Unfortunately, the columns were hard to match, so I needed a plan B.  I had done a little research on the school and was able to find an image of the building.  Using the actual black and white photo in the design wasn't really going to work, but I had another idea.  I decided to turn the image into a sketch and use it in the background of the invitation.

This is how they look:

I am still finishing up the order.  I need to print the return address on the response card envelopes and package them all up.  I may add more photos later when they are all finished.

Have a great weekend!!
