Victorian Ephemera-Inspired Wedding Suite
Design Army — The entire suite is perfectly done with just enough details and plenty of white space - the mailing envelope is to die for as well.View Edition Six
Annie & Will are both historians, or at the time grad students en route to becoming historians, and they were looking to create a suite with an undeniably vintage vibe -– but a fun and whimsical one, rather than a cold or stuffy one. We decided on 1800’s advertising as an inspiration for their wedding ephemera, focusing on a playful mix of typefaces, ornaments, frames, line work, and antique engravings.
We used the lively typography and pop of color to give the invitation a more modern freshness and the witty nature of an rsvp comprised of telegraphs and other outdated modes of communication to really punch up the whimsy! The creation of the suite for this lovely couple was so much fun, and I was thrilled with the bride’s choice of calligrapher (Neither Snow), use of vintage stamps in corresponding colors, and old fashioned twine to fully complete the vision.
