(music playing) Hi! I'm Nigel French, welcome to Designing an Invitation. In this short course we're going to create an invitation for a 30th birthday party. The techniques I'm going to cover apply not just to 30th birthday invitations, nor just to birthday invitations in general, but can be used for any sort of informal invitation for any sort of event. We'll be using the Adobe Creative Suite, InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop to create our invitation.
But we're also going to give the invitation a handmade personal quality by combining digital with traditional techniques. We'll be looking at different approaches to the invitation. They'll be an obvious approach, a somewhat obscure approach, and what I hope is a humorous approach. The bigger point is that there's always more than one solution to any design problem, and hopefully this course will give you ideas for how to approach similar design projects. So let's get started with Designing an Invitation.
