Coming of Age


Teens can’t seem to wait to be adults. It’s probably the only time when being older just doesn’t come fast enough. Coming of age parties like sweet 16, bar or bat mitzvah, quinceanera or confirmation have become big business. These celebrations often rival wedding receptions with invitations, elaborate cakes, catering and even event planners.

As a designer (and no longer close to my teens!) I’m interested in what kind of images or themes are associated with these rites of passage. What are teens into these days anyway? I like the idea of a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. It’s a great metaphor for a girl becoming a young woman. What do you think of this invitation design?
