Gentlemen, don't be afraid. I know the colors are absolutely adorable. I created Graduation Invites (check these out in their finished form) in "adult" colors, but I am dribbbling this shot of how I really wanted them. Inspired by all of the toys I played with growing up.
I did these about a month ago, and this was my very first attempt at this type of type combo. I learned a lot and plan to do another "type illustration" in the future! Or maybe even trying hand lettering...oh scary!

Loving your work Sarah!
these are ridiculously amazing, wish I had them for my graduation party :)
Love it Sarah. Especially the fonts and color choice. :)
I love your color choice here, but, dang, the black ones on your site look really sharp. Good stuff.
Thanks everybody! Yeah, I loved the pink - I actually had about 10 dif possible color palettes for these - but I ended up going with BW because it was the most impactful.
I also should have mentioned in my description that all the "showy-ness" of the verbiage is totally tongue-in-cheek. My family gets it, because I've been in school foreveeerrr and no one thought I was ever going to finish! :)
Congrats on your graduation! I graduated with two degrees, too. BA in Graphic Design and BA in Creative Writing.
Thanks, Erica! That's funny - we've got similar degrees :)
Great minds think alike...?
I think so! Hehe
Wow, these are stunning! Do prefer the black and yellow though. Nice work!
Thanks, Andy! I think the consensus is that the BW ones are better :) I'm glad I went with that version!
Sarah these are very cool! I love what seems to be the final design on your site. Well done. Well done.
Hooray! Thanks, Matt & Henning! :D
This is so cool!
Haha, I dig it. I'm not sure if it's intentional or not (or maybe it's just the font and you don't give a damn - haha), but I noticed that in "Journalism & Media Studies" ... "sm & Media Studies" is actually a couple of pixels lower than "Journali"
You should get these letterpressed!
Hey Jeff! Someone else actually pointed this out, and I hadn't noticed it, because it's just an export error. The original doesn't have this issue. Thank you, though!!! :D
Hey no problem. That's what we're here for right? I'm sure you get bored with all the one line comments telling you how awesome your work is (which it is!), instead of critiquing huh? haha
Hahaha, oh, Jeff. that's very nice of you to say :) I've got a very long way to go, so I really appreciate the second pair of eyes from all of the great designers on here. I'm in awe of some of the stuff on dribbble! Hehe, but thanks again :D
Pshaw, your stuff is awesome! I'll echo everyone else - the B&W version was a great choice.
Thank you so much, Jay! After everyone's comments I'm sort of turning to agree - I suppose I like the BW better, too :)
