Designed for a young and modern couple, these wedding invitations deviate from
normal wedding style. I wanted to infuse mid-century colors with classic elegance
and hand-lettered elements to make them completely unique.
In a nod to the traditional wedding invitation, I chose to mix several typefaces but in a more contemporary style. I used Caslon for headers, but applied with decorative line
work to give it an updated look. I paired this with Playfair Display, a transitional font inspired by Baskerville, for the names of the bride and groom only. For body text, I
chose Century Gothic for its clean geometric forms that provided nice contrast to the decorative serifs in the hand-lettering. The non-traditional color palette of cream, light blue, navy, and coral was applied to the typography and hand-drawn floral illustrations.
