Personal experience has led me to the conclusion that there are few finer things in life than a well done pig roast. One thing that can make them even better is a well designed invitation to get people excited. The type treatment fits well into the overall theme and the contrasting colors help create movement throughout the invitation.

The purpose of this piece is to get people excited about an annual pig roast hosted by a local family in a small town. People travel from all over the state (and sometimes out of state) to get together and kick-off the summer with some outdoor fun. The inspiration for this postcard came from the southern BBQ theme, while also incorporating the patriotism associated with Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to portray the feeling of the classic red checkered tablecloths and american flags that usually decorate summer BBQ’s. The quirky vernacular strengthens the casual, friendly vibe of the design and the outdoor event that it represents.
