My wife, daughter and I traveled to Atlanta last weekend so that she could visit my hometown for the first time and meet all of my and my parents friends. I wanted to make an invitation for the event and thought there might be room to play with the medium a bit.

Normally die cut and print invitations are going to be out of budget for a small event like this, but when you're sending something digitally there isn't really a production cost.

I thought about how I'd just be texting the invites to people so shape wasn't really an issue. I could do whatever. What I did have to account for though was day/night mode on people's phones. Since the background could be white or black depending on the time of day I realized I needed to export as a png so it would appear correctly whenever it was viewed.

A minor thing, but you'd be surprised how many people default to squares and rectangles for purely digital executions.
