Book Design: Plastic Ahoy!

I do love highlights of orange as design element. Orange for attention. Orange for tension. Orange for popping in an otherwise calm color scheme. When the book topic at hand is plastic pollution in our oceans, all three of those color orange characteristics apply to the book design:

Also something I love: that this science book following the research journey of three women scientists was written, photographed, edited, researched, and designed by all women.

Design: Wedding Invitation

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?
