So my sister had her baby today, which is very exciting. Yay! Another little boy. I'm keeping the details to myself for now because I want to give them a chance to tell all of their family and friends.
But because I still have baby on my mind, I thought a post about birth announcements would be appropriate. I'm excited to be designing my sister's announcements and have been gathering inspiration, so below are a few creative concepts I really like. This also gives you a glimpse on how I brainstorm as half of these are not actual baby announcements but just looks I like. Enjoy!
I obviously could never do this perforated concept myself, but I love the uniqueness of it. I also like the way they used the initials of his name.
So I know Richard Perez's Things I Like Poster is not a baby announcement. But I like the idea of using this color scheme and look of large block words to create something similar.
This is not an announcement either, but I love the color scheme and some how incorporating the egg shape or hatched egg somehow. I'm a huge fan of using unique shapes for announcements and the little bird footprints are also a cute touch.
Tiny Prints has a ton of cute announcements you can customize and order.
I love all the different patterns and creative use of typography. Since it is in a different language though, I am not sure how well they are getting the information across.
This is actually a wedding invitation but I like the concept of using a tall column of text in different weights with scalloped lines in between. Very classy and clean.
