Baby Julian

This summer we welcomed another baby boy to the block, born to the awesome Foley family. I had a lot of fun designing for Carley & Casey because they knew a few specific elements they wanted to incorporate, but then let me have at it in developing this birth announcement for their first born babe. Carley has created a beautiful nursery for baby Julian in gray and yellow, so his current 'team colors' have influenced the announcement as well. They also have a fondness for elephants, so I drew this illustration to celebrate their adorable new family. I used a detail from a photo of an elephant to create the skin texture and it came out perfect on the press. The announcement is printed in two runs on 110# Lettra and delivered in a gray envelope. Photographer Brooke F. Scott took the adorable photo of Julian as a sleepy newborn, but now he's all grown up and wide awake cheering on the Red Sox with Daddy!
