“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

What started as a small side business has evolved to the extent that I now do more photocards than regular design jobs. These are some that I’ve done for my own family.
The Making of a Photo Card

I recently finished an invite for my nephew Hayden’s birthday party, and I thought I would show you all the parts that make up a design….
Some old paper that I found on Google Images;
A Sheriff’s badge (Deep-etched – That’s where I take out all the background, quite a tedious process). I played around with two until I chose this one;
Some more old paper (also Google Images) that I placed on a black square;
A Cowboy hat (Deep-etched) – I tried two different hats before I used this one, I had to find one that looked right on his head;
Some rope (Deep-etched) – you can just see it in the foreground, as Hayden, the hat and the rope have been covered with a light transparency;
Then, of course, choose some Western-type fonts and Voila!
Well, they liked it… :)
Design is a learning experience. So my agenda is to figure out what I want to learn next. – Ayse Birsel
