I was contracted to create a Birthday Invitation for a client going by the name of Nayanya who was located in South Africa. The process I had to take to ensure I got this project was to send a proposal for the design and some samples of my work then the contractor would decide if I was suitable for the role. As you can see from the designs I was picked to do the work and I undertook the task like I would undertake every design task by putting 100% into what I was doing and trying to produce something new and different for the client I am designing for.
When I got talking to the client I got the impression that they didn't really know what they wanted from the invitation apart from it had to be "Noddy" related. So I said to the client that I would go away and put some designs together and come back to her within a few days of the chat to show her what I had done and what she liked from the designs, and what she didn't like from the designs.
After a few days of designing I went back to the client with 3 designs and asked her which one she liked the most or what changes she would like to make to the ones I had done to make the invitation perfect for her son. Within about 30 minutes of that conversation she got back to me and said she liked them all but picked out the one that was most relevant to the party. So the final design I came up with was a tall, slim, portrait style invitation that had a garden themed background, with an illustration of "Noddy" (that I drew myself) standing in the garden. Overall I was very, very happy with the final design and I loved the challenge of doing something different and would love to do something like this again.
The client was really happy with the final design and has given me a really lovely reference to tell people what she thought. You will also find the design of this invitation has been created by me as I like to make everything I design my own so its unique to me and the client. The software I used to create this logo was Adobe Photoshop and the client has also provided me with a reference for this design work.
