About a week ago, my father passed away after a year long battle with lung cancer. Before he passed, I was able to visit him and spend one good day with him and his old friends from college before things went downhill.
As I was making funeral arrangements, the funeral home offered to create memorial cards for my father. Unfortunately, the samples they presented were far from the visual design aesthetic I’ve come to appreciate (i.e., randomly placed gradients, faded photos of clouds and flowers in the background, and overly scripty fonts).
Thus, as a final tribute to my father, I designed his memorial cards. It’s hard to sum up a person’s life into a single card, but I know that for those who knew him, this card will summon all the good memories they had of him. Rest in peace, Dad.
