Wedding Invitations

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!

Here comes the sun…

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.

Upcoming Adventures in Invitations

I have a request to design wedding invitations and ephemera for a wonderful couple getting married at a lovely mansion in Connecticut this summer. Initially, I was sketching out some more Art Deco styles, but I’ve come to find out that the bride is inspired by Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn, not the Teenage Witch) so I’m trying some floral ideas inspired by the iconic dress worn by Audrey.

what I’ve been up to lately…

New school, new projects, and no sleep.

here’s some stuff I’ve been working on.

Illustrating the alphabet. Some of the letters got out of order, I’m not sure how to fix that, but you’ll get the idea.

The final ad… and what I learned.

Always do a test print. Or several. I wasn’t able to get into the computer labs at school, and learned that the hard way. My ad came out a black muddy mess.

I got a B+ still, mainly because the professor liked the idea, the image, and the fact that I took the initiative to take my own photo instead of pulling one off the web. SO luckily, it pulled my grade up, because that print was horrendous.

Here’s the final ad, in color, the way I intended it to look before the printer got it.

And now for something completely different…

Yes! I’m still alive… and I do check up on things here daily, so feel free to leave comments, I would totally love that.

From time to time, the place I work will run print ads or mailers advertising specials, coupons  and such. I get to design the ads, which is super cool, since I really don’t have much of a design background (I am related to a graphic designer, so, does that count?).I thought I’d share the latest one.

This one should be coming out in the next few weeks. I’m excited to see how the final print will look.

The pegboard, note paper and ripped loose leaf are from sxc.hu. Sticky notes were photographed by me. The image of the skiers and logos are from ski/snowboard company media files.
