This project is a Bar Mitzvah invitation suite I worked on for Jake, the eldest of two sons, and brother of Hannah, whose Bat Mitzvah invitations I had previously designed (see Hannah’s invitation suite here). Jake is a baseball player and a great young man. I worked with Catherine Bachelier Smith of CBS Lifestylist, who planned Jake’s Bar Mitzvah party, as well as with Jake and his parents, in order to come up with an invitation suite that spoke to Jake’s love of all things baseball. The Bar Mitzvah party itself was to include sports nostalgia and vintage touches, and I kept that in mind while putting the visual elements of the suite together. We all agreed it would be fun to make the invitation card look like an authentic baseball ticket, complete with an actual perforated line separating the invitation from the main RSVP, so that the recipient could easily tear off the RSVP and send back to Jake’s family in the enclosed envelope. The final product was truly a collaborative effort, and most importantly, hit a home run with Jake!
There are three individual cards included in this suite: combined invitation card and child’s RSVP, adults’ RSVP card and envelope, as well as folded thank you card and envelope. There is also a digital save the date, which I designed and coded, and for which I provided instructions to the client (for emailing out in advance). All designs are pictured in the slideshow above (with the exception of the save the date).
