For all the old school gamers out there, here’s a custom invite design for a birthday party at Pinballz, a retro video game arcade in Austin. I initially had Colin dressed up as Mario from Donkey Kong. The final design simply has Colin playing the arcade game instead.

Here’s an updated version of the pool party invite. Just tweaked the color scheme a bit and then changed the twins’ outfits. Also added new swim icons to the invite.

Recent custom order: a combination-themed dinosaur and princess birthday invite. It was a little brain exploding trying to figure out how to bring the two themes together, but it was still fun to work on!

ARRRR!!!! Don’t be a lily-livered scalawag. Have a look-see at this newfangled birthday invite! (Don’t worry, the rest of this post will not be written in pirate. You’re welcome.) Still working on a corresponding pirate-themed thank you card. As far as the next birthday card design goes, it will definitely be a super-hero themed one. Hoping [...]

Here is this year’s design for the Rise School of Austin’s graduation invitation. Can’t believe another school year is almost over! I thought it might be fun to have a space-themed invite along the lines of “The Right Stuff.” The front of the invite has a spaceship with a port hole for each student. Originally, [...]

Here’s the 2010 holiday card design for the Rise School of Austin. Like last year’s card, the design was centered around a panoramic school photo. Went with a peppermint candy theme this time around.

This is a logo/header design for the blog, “The Doughy Runner”. Follow the ups and downs of a first-time marathoner as she trains for a race in NYC. http://thedoughyrunner.blogspot.com/ We did a couple of initial designs simply based on the name of the blog, but it wasn’t until we actually had a chance to read [...]
