Minted Design Challenge: Graduation Announcement Stationery


This is the very first graduation announcement stationery I have ever designed, and it has been a very delightful experience. I got the chance to detach myself from my MacBook and spent a couple of days sketching and watercoloring. 

For the first three designs I submitted for this challenge, I wanted to keep it simple and focused on one specific design mark, the quintessential graduation cap. I also used a soft peach color palette enhanced by rose foil details. If all get picked as winners, I am thinking on creating gold and silver foil versions.

And here they are...

Our Grad

Caps and Tassels

And here are the two designs that were made thinking of my little Luke and that big moment when he graduates from either kindergarten or college. I cannot wait!
