Festive Bar Crawl Invitations
I’m excited to show off my latest invitations designed for a bar crawl in honor of a close friend of mine. She will be returning from teaching abroad in South Korea in the next couple weeks, and although I had a really small budget for this project, I wanted to create something that would get people excited — and make them want to join in on the fun!
I decided to go with a circus themed bar crawl and found a ton of inspiration in vintage Barnum and Bailey posters, raffle tickets and the beloved classic popcorn bag. Along with the red and blue, I love how the design feels very American, which is appropriate for this particular celebration.
I’m always trying to find any excuse to use some of my favorite wood type fonts, and this project was no exception. The combination of bold color, playful typography and circus-inspired illustration all contribute to the success of this festive design. I saved money by having them printed digitally on a thick gloss paper, and mailed them in bright yellow envelopes. With all this hype it’s bound to be a exceptionally good time!
