Generally, I like to post things like this on my Instagram account but couldn’t help it. How pretty are those colors!!! I’m working on a fun new wedding invitation and the colors I’m using are just dreamy….. Love my desk at the moment and all of this mess ;)
#tbt to my first wedding invitation. I’ve designed it and printed it for my friends who this year celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. It was a fun but very time consuming project and I got to do it all manually, no computer involved. I worked with a vintage raised metal type that I set in the composing stick, setting letter by letter, line by line. It took me at least 3 attempts to find the type with complete alphabet that had all the letters I needed that weren’t damaged (“a’s” were always needed!) and yet I had to compromise on the ampersand that doesn’t match ;) I have to say I still like this invitation and it’s imperfections and how modern it looks given the traditional way of designing and printing it.
A quick sneak of the day-of-wedding stationery for the wedding this weekend. It’s been a crazy, fast turn around but I’m happy we made the deadline! My favorite designs from this wedding are the unique, square place cards. I absolutely can’t wait any longer to see more images from this wedding ;)
