60th Birthday Invitations

Print book design and birthday invitations.

For my father’s 60th birthday, my siblings and I had a lot of fun putting together his birthday present and organizing the birthday celebrations.

We began planning his joint present back in December by getting as many relatives, friends and work colleagues to contribute their birthday wishes, fond memories of my Dad, things they appreciate about him and a recent photo to a book.

The 120 page book was designed using InDesign and printed with Blurb. It was full of beautiful words and photos from so many people for my much-loved Dad.

Here’s a little preview of the book (that’s a picture of me, my husband and boys):

I designed the theme to be based around the word “Happy” – both short for “Happy Birthday” and “Happiness” using bright yellow to complement it. It also features some basic math as Dad is a high school math teacher and loves all things math-related.

I designed the invitations to match as well:

Almost 100 people turned up for the party and it was so lovely to catch up with many relatives and family friends from over the years.
