It is always a challenge to do personal projects because I never want to stop refining them. This invitation was for a joyous occasion and I wanted to make it special. We were engaged at the beach — the sun was setting and we were eating sushi — and I wanted to capture that moment in the design. Thus, watercolor and a blue palette were in order. Out of all the pieces created for the design, my favorites were the custom icons for the map. I didn’t want a generic map graphic, I wanted to create unique representations of the venues that were housing the special day.
