It’s that time of year when requests start to come trickling in for wedding invite designs. This year my good friend, Mandy, asked me to design her invites. We’ve been friends since before I knew her real name was Miranda. I remember sitting in study hall in high school, the teacher taking roll call and me yelling out (as she called Miranda’s name), “Your name is MIRANDA?!?!” I was completely taken by surprise. Regardless, we’ve been friends for a long, long time and have all the stories to prove it. She has some good ideas and it will be fun to see where our combined thoughts take us. She has a few things in mind, but for the most part, she is leaving most of the creativity to me. The creative wheels are turning!
I’m a big fan of unique wedding invites. Having done a handful of custom wedding designs myself, I admire and appreciate a thoughtful concept. This invite, by Rudi de Wet, totally caught my eye today. I love the handmade typography and illustrations. Super cool.
