Calling All Superheroes!
Print invitation for my nephew’s fourth birthday party. The party had a superhero theme featuring multiple heroes. I referenced comic book styles to create an invitation that evoked a sense of a call to action (literally).
I wanted to feature some of Xavier’s favorite heroes, but in a way that was a bit more playful than traditional representations of heroes on birthday invitations. Therefore, I went for younger versions of the heroes while still capturing their personalities; the silliness of Spider-Man, the dependability of Captain America, and the over-confident nature of Iron Man. I also went for a simpler skyline silhouette, inspired by the cardboard cut-outs of buildings that would be used at the party. Colors reflected traditional comic book colors, but in lighter tones to evoke youthfulness.
