Graduation season is wrapping up, and so are the last of my custom graduation announcements. As much as I love weddings, there’s certainly something to be said for graduations—they mark such an important milestone, whether it’s the completion of high school or college. With each design, I consider the countless hours poured into each achievement… and what a blessing it is to have the opportunity to receive an outstanding education. It makes my heart happy when graduates embrace a unique announcement design that captures their personality and heralds their achievements in style.
Today I’m showcasing Caitlin’s graduation announcements, which celebrate her commencement from Drexel University. The design is based on my own graduation announcements (take a peek here!) back when I walked the stage at SMU. This entire design is a hand-lettered composition, then digitized and prepared for print. We personalized the text, fine-tuned the script, and changed the color palette to reflect her school colors. We even added a Drexel Dragon into the design as a nod to her soon-to-be alma mater. Add hand-calligraphed envelopes for the finishing touch, and this announcement set was complete.
The best part? I get to hear all about my clients’ next steps in life. Their accomplishments never cease to amaze me! Caitlin is embarking on her career as a mechanical engineer—an impressive feat, especially in the eyes of a right-brained person like me. Not to mention graduating Cum Laude from a highly competitive program! Congratulations to Caitlin, and to all my graduating clients; I can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for each of you.
