Thought I’d post up this fun little design project I completed recently. An open brief to do a birthday party invite! Armed with the knowledge of knowing he loves his fly fishing I had the idea of doing some fishing line based typography, which of course naturally required including an intoxicated looking trout into the design! Being a masterful woodworking craftsmen I knew he’d appreciate a hand finished look so this really helped define the graphic style I was going for.

Really enjoyed putting this one together from a sketch and doodle, through to inking up, scanning, colouring in the marvel that is Photoshop, and finally printing, chopping up and delivery.




(and yes the party was great fun too 😛 )
