When my son Finn was born I wanted to make a personalized announcement of his birth to send to friends and family that could also be used as a poster and hung up in his room.

My wife and I had recently taken a trip to Ireland before my son's birth and heard about the story of the giant Finn McCool when we visited Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland.  I wanted to incorporate the inspiration for his name into the design of the poster so I came up with a concept of the giant Finn McCool hanging out with our Finn while standing on Giants Causeway.

It's proudly hanging in my son's room and is a great reminder of the genesis of his name, and that I have to do it all over again if we have another baby.
