A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015
No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.
This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.
Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.
Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.
To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.
The curve of a wedding invitation September 25 2014
This week would like to highlight an invitation that embraced simple curves wherever it could. Keeping affordability in mind, only small aspects needed to be created to give it an unforgettable impression!
The design has a damask/organic ornate feeling that is light and flows throughout the wedding. The edges of the invitation were shaped to create a round edge. This was repeated on the RSVP card, the information cards and the envelope address pieces to complete the look.
This combination of curve and hard edge creates a beautiful modern twist. The invitation’s typography mimics this relationship by switching things up and having the body copy in script and the highlighted names in print.
The RVSP card!
The Information cards!
The gorgeous circle magnet Save the Date!
The Program book!
The Menu and Escort Cards!
The Thank you card!
The color focus was navy blue, magenta and cream. This wedding invitation gave guests a perfect indication that they would be enjoying an event full of modern, fun twists while still highlighting all the beautiful traditions expected at a wedding!
Keeping it simple with a cool modern style September 25 2014
In our last blog we spoke about modern monograms. This week we would like to show you another example of using typography in a simple way and how it adds a cool modern touch to an invitation.
This was the kind of couple that couldn’t wait to spend their lives together. Their happiness glowed and their love for each other was very apparent. When we spoke about the style of invitation they wanted, they pretty much left the entire design up to us. After multiple versions were presented, they realized that having the initial of the family name was perfect because they couldn’t wait to be a family.
With all that said, they picked an invitation design that can only be described as simple with a cool modern style. The monogram had a flare of typography that is inviting and exciting.
The V initial was also used in the other elements of the invitations: the response card, accommodation and directions cards. Changing the placement of the initial to work with the surrounding copy is key. A good design needs the art to be visible and invisible at the same time.
Once the invitation was out the bride and groom came back for more!! Below you can see the program, favor charity note with envelope along with the escort card.
