This graduation invitation features road maps that have been printed over and chopped to fit the invitation size. The silk screened Texas silhouette on the map is a great graphic device to get one’s attention. There is nice use of typography that comes across as lighthearted and fun, which graduation should be.

Since I’m from a big (mostly) Texan family, I wanted to create a fitting announcement for my graduation and moving up into the “real world” as an art director. When I began designing, I knew I wanted to try my hand at screen printing vintage maps I had around the house. I like the meaning of “movin’ on up” figuratively but literally as well, as I plan on moving to New York after graduation. I also created a webpage where guests can get directions and information on the day’s events!
