a fun little design side project

graphic design blog

Two friends of mine decided to get married last year. As a present to them, I designed their wedding invitations. Marie & Andrew wanted a clean contemporary feel that wouldn’t scare off the traditionalists, and I wanted to incorporate an element specific to their ceremony location—Como Conservatory—into the invitation design. The sunken garden is a superb place to get married if you want to avoid decorating for your ceremony:

None of us wanted to put a bunch of flowers on the invitation, but the swirl in the railing would do nicely. The finished invitations:

With two invitiations and RSVP cards to put together, there were five pieces in all:


Marie & Andrew are currently living happily ever and I will always think of their names combined by an ampersand. Because what designer doesn’t love the curves & shapes of an ampersand?
