Birth Card for Mozes, the first child of my cousin Nirvana and her husband Reinier. I also designed and produced the birth card of Nirvana 34 years before, as the first child of my sister, that I illustrated, typesetted and printed myself.
My role: Design, choices of paper and envelope, selecting the suppliers to produce it, in this case RUPARO Amsterdam for digital print of leafs and Wytze from Fopma Wier in Friesland for the foiling and bonding of the papers and the finish altogether. Excellent work on both parties.
Paper front: Gmund Bio Cycle Chlorophyll Blattgrün 300 g/m2
Paper back: Fedrigoni, Sirio Color Caffè 2 x 300 g/m2, x 2 layers
Unique features/challenges: Finding the means materials and techniques to give this birth card the same heart felt and crafted feel that I did with the birth card for Nirvana 34 years ago.
