Some people might not know this about me, but I’m originally from Mexico, so I’m fluent in both English and Spanish. And, every so often, I’ll design a project in Spanish. A couple of months ago, I helped create this digital invitation for an end-of-term event at the Instituto Laforet, a school in Piedras Negras, Coahuila. The school closed its doors in June, and they wanted to celebrate their last graduating generation with one final memorable and lively event. It was awesome to be able to put together this fun and school-themed invite for the occasion. Do you need a bilingual graphic designer? If so, let’s chat (in English or Spanish)!
A few weeks ago, I shared a sneak peek of an invitation I was designing for the Montessori School of San Antonio’s 2019 Annual Spring Gala.

Check out this lovely trifold invitation we created for the event. This year, we also printed and addressed envelopes to match the invite. So, if you’re in the middle of planning a party or fundraiser, consider reaching out to me if you need help designing and printing the invitations!

So while I haven’t done an event myself, I am in awe of those around me who do take on the challenge!
With that said, here is a sneak peek of an invitation I

The MSSA Spring Gala, themed “The Wishing Well,” has held a couple of weeks ago at the beautiful Don Strange Ranch! Last fall, BlackStone Studio had the pleasure of creating a unique logo for this event, so I was more than happy to work with their committee chairs again to design and print these custom trifold invitations, which included donation cards and personalized envelopes. Check them out above!
BlackStone Studio recently designed these lovely wedding invitations for Amanda & Brian. These lovebirds became husband and wife on February 14th — so romantic!
