PROJECT: Wedding Invitation Suite
ROLE: Art Direction, Designer, and Illustrator
OBJECTIVE: The invitation to anything, especially a wedding, should set the tone and theme of the event. This was custom designed, handmade, and tailored to their special day.
OVERVIEW: Details are abundant in the autumn wedding invitations inspired by the delicate structure of a leaf. This was the inspiration behind the custom pocket invitation that my brother and his fiancé were looking for, with the Japanese Maple leaves illustrated to bring elements of the venue, the crisp fall setting, and the subtle hint of my brothers’ Japanese nationality. Burgundy and silver are woven throughout the design – from the silver envelopes and sparkly belly bands accented with vellum to the burgundy die cut invitation and hand lettered addresses – which was used throughout the ceremony and decor of the venue.
This project strengthened my packaging design skills and creative problem solving. Using what resources I had, I was able to create over 100 handmade invitations. Designed with the finished invitation in mind, many separated pieces had to be brought together to create the final result.
