Every year I make a birthday crown for our son Lloyd based on something he’s accomplished that year or something that he’s interested in. This year it’s movies! I gathered images from the golden age of film noir movies posters for their use of color and type treatments. I added the photo of the movie audience for the crown’s band because he enjoys 3D movies. I created the number 12 in Adobe Illustrator, based on old movie countdown numbers.
Here’s Lloyd in his birthday finery about to blow out the candles on the massive cake I wrote about yesterday.
