WEDDING INVITATION TAKES A CUE FROM THE PAST
We don’t often do work for individuals, but when lovely Samantha Eichenburg called me up and asked if we’d design her wedding invitations, we could hardly say no. Samantha’s vision was an invitation mailer with RSVP card that reflected a 1920s vintage feel that fit with their choice of venue—an historic supper club in Northeast Minneapolis. She requested gold and silver to match her wedding colors, and a sense of traditional elegance.
In designing the concepts, we researched the era and were drawn to both neo-classic and art nouveau styles that were popular at the time. We combined hand illustration with vintage illustrations to create custom borders for each concept. We selected type that fit the era after a search of hundreds of fonts. The following are the two concepts we presented:Pin It
Samantha and Joe selected the first concept, which we used to inspire the rest of the project’s pieces. The result is below:
Bride and groom were pleased with completed pieces, and we had gained a new appreciation for an historical era past.
