Two iterations created of an email invitation for the annual University Awards Banquet. This invitation was sent to faculty and honored students.
For these invitations, I wanted to convey a sense of professionalism and legitimacy, without making the design too restrained or stuffy. These invitations were sent out via email, so I added the accent on top to evoke the sense of a physical invite.
I drew the letterforms in Illustrator, created pngs of the icons in Photoshop, and did final layout in Illustrator.
