We were delighted when Doug and Dayna asked us to design the birth announcement for their second child (see the first one here) They wanted to keep the same format and style, but this time with a woodland theme.

Congratulations to Doug and Dayna on the birth of their son Andrew! Here is the jungle-themed one colour birth announcement with matching envelope that we designed for Doug and Dayna.Printed on Crane Lettra, 300 gsm, 4×6.
Here is a baby announcement that captures the personality of the parents and the playfulness of the child. Both parents are lovers of heavy metal and rock music. The father himself is an extremely talented drummer.
This announcement was commissioned by the grandmother of the newborn and music was the overall idea in mind when we went to work on sketches for her. We thought it would really add to the piece to use the baby’s birth information and design it like a concert poster.
Once we had approval on one of the sketches we went ahead and illustrated it as a final black and white drawing, made some plates and printed the job. This was a lot of fun to work and both the parents and the grandparents were very happy.
