I had not one, but 2 brothers graduate this past month. The first was my middle brother Logan, from the University of Florida! The second was my youngest brother Ryan, the third and final Smith sibling to graduate from Brookwood High School. I convinced my mother and Ryan to let me design his graduation announcements back in March and had the absolute best time putting them together. My family is always the ideal client because they trust my visions 100%, removing a bit of the stress from the design process. But at the same time, I wanted these announcements to be perfect for my little brother, so I did stress over the details just a little.

I adore infographics, especially ones that have a little more personality, and I knew right from the start I wanted to incorporate some.  Lucky for me, my brother is multi-talented, and an over-achiever so I had a variety of tid bits to choose from! Ryan will be attending the University of Georgia in the fall so we decided to go with a red and black color scheme.

Congrats Ryan! Along with Ryan’s announcements I also got to create a design for a family friend. Becca is planning to be a fashion design major next year and definitely wanted an announcement that would stand out and reflect her creative side. I sent over a few different concepts, but this one was her favorite.

Also, I have a few grad announcements currently for sale over on Minted!

Congratulations Class of 2012!
