Lead Image

This is a top-of-the-line birth announcement printed with four Pantone colors on a classic letterpress machine and yellow painted edges. Reading between the lines, if the bright colors correspond to the joy of a new baby in the house, perhaps the grid organization and the structured type express a level of control the parents could be longing for.
