This past weekend, Katie and I hosted a baby shower for our dear friend Megan. Since we live in Japan, what better theme for a baby girl than kokeshis -- the adorable wooden dolls that are so popular here in the land of the rising sun.
I designed a fun little invitation for the shower and I thought I'd give you a little insight into my design process. I started by sketching the cute little kokeshi that would become the focal point for the invitations. First, I did a rough sketch in my Moleskine sketchbook, then finished up all the details and exact colors on my Wacom tablet. After finishing the Photoshop file of the kokeshi, I moved into InDesign to do the graphic design for the invitation.
