wedding suite and printed materials

November 19, 2011

It may come as no surprise that I designed all the printed materials for our wedding. Here are some really marginal pictures of most of them.

The Save the Date:

The bridal shower invite:

Our neat-o triple fold invitation:

the front

the back of the rsvp card

the inside

The Menu/Programs:

The poor picture quality doesn’t do them justice. It was a learning experience and not everything was perfect (hello RSVP cards with no name line)  but we were pretty happy with the results!

It was certainly a fun design challenge to keep the themes consistent without being boring and repetitive.

After the wedding, Mike and I took our parents out for ‘We Survived’ brunch to say thanks for everything. I thought it would be appropriate to illustrate one of my wedding stress dreams for the invitations.

 

In other news, tomorrow is my birthday! :)

Dramatic removal of all art images from Facebook: Day Four.

I made this invitation for a friend a couple of winters ago. Fortunately my friend Kibwe Johnson at the top right, who is a very talented hammer thrower and his friend, the scantily clad gentleman on the left (though he is allegedly wearing pants), G. Martin Bingisser, also a hammer thrower, were both very accommodating about the use of their image. For this, I would like to recommend any track and field fans check out their links as we will all probably  see both competing in the Olympics some day.

I fished the guy on the bottom out of a GIS (google image search) but I think he looks suspiciously like Seth Herzog. You be the judge.

I made this in response to Mike Birbiglia‘s Facebook request for a Christmas card design. I never submitted it as I wasn’t sure whether it infringed on the copyright of whoever designed his book cover but I did later tag him in it. No response, but also, no cease and desist letter….
