Project Description

Alex and Alicia wanted their wedding invite to feel authentic to who they are as a couple. We began by considering symbolic imagery that have characterized their years together. Things like music, an eco-conscious lifestyle, the odd spider plant. From there, we developed a graphic language inspired by vintage concert posters, tracing a path from where they met, to where they’ll wed. Recipients also get a card of cut outs, featuring the couple and some of their iconic daily props. Just something to bring a little more dimension to the overall experience. The overall piece is youthful and fun. Just like them.

Production Lesson(s)

Prototyping! It was super important to prototype every cut-out to make sure they stood up. I wasn't able to print on the 140lb paper right away, and had to settle for prototyping with 110lb or 100lb. But, if the people and objects were able to stand up, it would work with the 140lb. The contours of the objects were also important to look at, so they weren't so awful to cut out. ”
