Impressions Foiling

A big leap for two young designers as they explored the limits of production, knowledge, experience, and design in the process of their own wedding invitation. Luckily they found a great printer to lend a hand where they were unsure.

Project Description

We are having a night time wedding so we chose this as our design theme. We looked at lots of different routes but really connected with old constellation maps and there detail. We developed the concept further to incorporate all the people invited to the wedding into there own cluster of stars so each guest could find their name and feel involved in the wedding before it began.

Production Lesson(s)

We were surprised the level of detail the foiling could handle, having only done basic logos etc in the past. Initially we struggled to find a printer who would produce a form of this size but impressions saved the day!”
