DM Insight - Sydney and Parker's Papertale

 Sydney and Parker came to me looking to capture an "Old Florida" feel in their wedding stationery.  The golds and peaches needed to be featured in setting the tone for this elegant occasion.  The wedding was to take place at The Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota and capturing the gandeur of this venue was important for the inspiration of this stationery.



 The invitation itself featured a watercolor ombre background with the text foil-stamped in gold on a soft, letterpress paper.  This is a process that I watch as each, indivdual invitation comes off the press.  It is a remarkable, vintage method of printing and gives each invitation and very hand made feel.

The pocket envelope configuration immediately appealed to Sydney and Parker.  Pairing it with the perfect floral pattern created an impressive package to be delivered to each guest.

 The combination of stately block fonts with the whimsy of the script gave the invitation a formal and fun feeling.  The inspiration comes from the personality of the couple and the excitement of the event and venue.

The insert cards tied the whole suite together by featuring the combination of fonts and colors along with floral drawn from the pocket envelope.  

Today's DM Inspiration is taking risks by combining multiple, bold elements to create the perfect combination.  Florals, fonts, watercolor, and foil come together to create an unexpected work of art.

    "Less is more" is a popular saying or mantra in many aspects of design.  Sometimes clean simplicity can make the boldest statement.  This was the case in working on the invitation for Merissa and Matthew.  Letterpress printing is a traditional method of printing using a printing press. During this process each invitation is produced with direct impression of an inked, raised surface against cardstock or paper. The look and feel of the technique gives the invitations depth and dimension.
