sometimes i wonder if i'm not a better curator than creator.

double graduation announcement was heavily influenced by 3 sources.

a close up of the text:
first of all, and most obviously, i totally copied this layout
from seesaw's studio opening invite.
seesaw is a really great "creative studio" complete with
blog, letterpress, graphic design, vintage etsy shop...

in other news, i helped my friend design her wedding announcements
recently as well. i can't take any credit for the
photo or the printing that make my work look nicer...
but i did do the announcement design:
