© Els Vlieger Birth card for Oliver
I was honoured to illustrate and design Oliver’s birth card, baby drink announcement and sticker.
One of Oliver’s mum’s hobbies is scuba diving, so a deep sea theme was perfect for this printed matter. The choice to draw and paint a Humpback whale and her calf would also be an important metaphor of this new period in her life.
As usual when designing and illustrating (birth) cards I did the full graphic design for both the card and the baby drink announcement (here printed on semi-transparent tracing paper).
For Oliver’s card illustration I started with (analog) painting the Humpback mother and her calf. After scanning and editing I composed the various drawings in Affinity software and made the final illustration that formed the front and back of the double folded card. The bubbles above the mammals form the letter O, referring to the name Oliver.
