Congratulations to the parents of Tibo! On the 10th of march we got a message from Papa that their little one was born, a little early but happy and healthy :) Mama & Papa contacted us a few months earlier: they discovered an illustration with a dragon and a pram on our website which would be perfect for their birth announcement card. They visited for an intake where we discovered that they both love Efteling, the World of Wonder with a passion. Because Tibo will no doubt be visiting Efteling a lot, we decided to go for a fieldtrip to Efteling (for research purposes ;) and we incorporated some Efteling-inspired lights into the design of the card.
Mama sent a picture of their Pet-cat, who joined the dragon on the front of the card. Mama & Papa also ordered stickers with little TIBO on it, 2 A2 posters with the main illustration for the godparents to enjoy and a little A7 baby shower invitation card with the same illustrations … on the 10th of march everything was sent to the printers and picked up by Papa a few days later so they could announce the wonderfull news to friends and family.
We really enjoyed working on this project, especially the fieldtrip :) and hope that Tibo will get to enjoy his first trip to Efteling very soon!
Mama met us at our booth at FACTS in october 2018. She was a few months pregnant and on the look-out for a unique birth announcement card. We talked about the experience of the indistinguishable images of a first echograph, which inevitable gives any baby alien-like qualities :). While we were talking, the idea of a little alien baby traveling to her parents on earth took shape. But never say "just" alien to an alien: there are so many of them! After a few sketches with a little less Klingon or predator but a touch more Rosswell-Grey we finalised the concept. Mama & Papa came over for a visit to talk things through and look into the different possibilities for the treats/suikerbonen: they decided to go for a whole UFO fleet filled with suikerbonen. When everything was finished we had a fleet of 160 green and purple UFO's on our dining room table! Mama & Papa also wanted a little invitation card (A7) to invite people to Karolien's first party (babyshower). The files and UFO's were ready and on the 5th of March little Karolien was born. After nine months of waiting the fleet of UFO's could finally boldly go where no baby has gone before to spread the good news! Congratulations to the parents.
Congratulations to the parents of Katrien! We got a message during Comic Con Brussels this weekend that their little girl was born!
Mama and Papa had already bought an illustration from 4MINIgeeks for the children's room: a little girl and her dragonfriend looking at the moon from a tree branch. For the birth announcement of their little princess, they wanted to continue the story. For the front of the card the little girl and dragon had turned around to look towards the viewer and on the back of the card both of them are flying away.
Sketches were sent back and forward. The original concept had a RPG-card lay-out, but Mama & Papa decided they wanted the illustration to take up the whole front of the card. On the back of the card we added their two pet-cats. Mama & Papa also ordered boxes filled with treats/suikerbonen to celebrate the birth of little Kartrien. The boxes and the original painting were picked up a few weeks before the due date and then the waiting game began! Hopefully little Katrien has wonderfull dreams under the watchfull eye of her dragon friend.
because you can't start early enough
