August’s Projects

A quick demonstration of some stages we use to make custom wedding stationery. Painting the artwork, designing the stationery and the final printed products in-hand.

 

We created a video reviewing Kortni and Andrew’s printed wedding stationery. The two New Yorkers are celebrating in a sophisticated Brooklyn industrial space decorated with pops of tropical foliage as a nod to Andrew’s Jamaican roots. We’ve created simple, industrial influenced typography alongside vibrant tropical foliage and an icon of the Brooklyn Bridge for good measure. Included deliverables are their invitation, RSVP, a travel information booklet for out-of-towners, menu, program, table numbers and escort cards.

The start of some artwork for a vivacious Miami wedding. We start from Left to Right with a night time Skyline of Miami on the water, the center image is the reflection of the skyline at the top looking down onto the water, and the very right piece is the shore line with palm shadows caste on sand.

We completed Rachel and Jeff's stationery, a sophisticated and simple design was used for their high end affair. Their colors are indigo blue and copper to compliment their industrial setting; the Dye House, an old Mill in the heart of Baltimore. We created a copper foil icon of the Dye House on the front of their invitation, the back of which is a watercolor map of Baltimore. Complimentary pieces include a details card, RSVP and accompanying address printed, copper-lined envelopes.
