I was asked to design a wedding invitation set for a Cara and Louis, who will be married at the gorgeous Waveny House in Connecticut this coming August! I also designed their engagement party invites earlier this year. They requested an elegant and vintage style invitation to match the Tudor style mansion setting. I decided to use a lovely floral pattern in a soft peach (a ballet pink for two wonderful ballet dancers) for the backdrop of the invitation set, with a deep lapis shimmer pocket enclosure. I mixed a retro-inspired font I designed with starbursts for the invitation design. The invitation and reply were printed on white cotton paper and bound together with a soft peach cotton band and tag echoing the invitation design. I wish this pair a fabulous wedding day at the fabulous Waveny House!
This is what happens when you spend too much time at Starbucks… You get songs stuck in your head.
The original idea started out as a random doodle while chatting with my friends over the weekend. A little time in Illustrator to clean it up, and re-tool some of the letters, and some fun with Photoshop, and here it is; the final poster.
Creating a type specimen book for my newest (and first) type family, Ligne. Next up, a few posters for the Senior Exhibition in a couple of weeks.
Things are slowly starting to come together.
It’s having a little bit of an identity crisis…
another one down… almost. I think I’m going to crop the pieces down and mount them to some mat-board. It bothers me that the small chair ended up on its side… poor planning on my part. It’s alright though, because it would have to be folded anyhow to fit in the envelope so a little cropping shouldn’t be an issue.
one more to go.
Here’s what I’ve been working on so far. Two more projects to finish… and I’m running out of time!
Many, many thanks to everyone who’s been helping, supporting, inspiring, and donating materials for all these projects. You know who you are, and I couldn’t have gotten this far without all of you! Love you all!
Now its time for me to get back to work.
