Project Description

Design for wedding invitations. A drop down of eight faces, conceived as a gift with sustainable vocation. Free manual typesetting, combining wood and lead fonts from different eras and styles. The challenge was to effectively communicate the event details in three languages: Spanish, Swedish and Bosnian, due to provenance and origin of the couple and guests.

Production Lesson(s)

I loved being part of every process, making decisions and networking between clients and suppliers. I had the opportunity to work hand in hand with the printers in a romantic and special arts and crafts workplace, where I really enjoyed learning planning, typesetting and printing this delicate and special piece.”
