I was asked to make some retirement invites/tickets for a lady (Eirwen) from the NHS District Nurse Team.
My ideas behind the invites (Although very subtle) circle around old medicine bottles which carry stunning uses of typography. These bottles would now portray a very nostalgic and vintage feel put into todays environment.
I used red as a representation of the medical sector. I didn't want to make it obviously 'medical' so I kept this idea to a minimum. I did however sneak a little '+' in the design for good measure as I was asked to add some sort of relation to the job Eirwen is leaving, but I made sure I kept away from the tacky and predicability of patient information leaflets and so forth that we are swarmed by.
Take a look. Make an opinion. Feedback welcome.
