Originally envisioned as gold metallic on white, designer Wes Kull’s Art Deco inspired Save-the-Date poster for Gatsby-, Hemingway-, and Radiohead-lovers Julee and Dave looks just as striking on all the other paper stocks with which he experimented .

Project Description

Combining the Art Deco architecture of New York and structural details of the Manhattan Bridge, 19th century blueprints, the Great Gatsby, the book covers of Hemingway and Radiohead's Kid A, this save the date poster celebrates the interests of the couple whose wedding it announces and the city where it took place.

Production Lesson(s)

The poster was originally designed to be metallic gold on white, but we decided to experiment with different color paper to see what would give us the best result. The color of the gold ink changed in surprising ways from one sheet to the next, and it was difficult to pick my favorite to frame for the gift. I decided to just give the couple the entire set to choose from, and switch out whenever they wanted a different scheme.”
