Rakhi, wanted completely personalised invitations for her husbands 30th Birthday Invitations, but wasn't sure what exactly. She then remembered him saying 'If I was to be any superhero I would be Wolverine' that one line triggered it all. She decided to throw his a surprise superhero themed birthday. And of course the invitations had to match. The invitations had to represent and gear everyone up for the amazing superhero fancy dress party she was planning. So we decided on having her husband drawn as an illustrated wolverine.
For my reference, Rakhi provided me with many photo's of him and described how she wanted him stood and that she wanted me to incorporate his age somewhere. Adding to the theme I used a vintage background and cartoon looking font, making sure it didn't look like a child's birthday party. The images above are of the final invitation. She couldn't believe how real he looked, she ended up using the illustration for all the stationery: posters, napkins, balloons, and even the cake!
She recently told me 'My husband has now enlarged and framed it in the house' - It's comments like that, that make me love my job even more!
