A designers wedding
My Wedding invitation, 2009. Printed two-up on single sided A3+ stock on an Indigo Press.
I always find it a little challenging designing for myself as tend to be my own worst critic and find I want to push myself that little bit more. I spent a bit of time working with paper construction as I wanted to create a book-like feel to the design so the invitation revealed something new each flip of the page. With a budget in mind I managed to create a double-sided finish using only one side of print by manipulatingthe paper in on itself, giving a booklet feel to it. By leaving the inside tabs plain I gave the illusion that it was made up of more one part. This also created side pockets where I inserted pullout tabs. The left (directions) and right (gift register) tabs were slotted inside the back outer side. All keyline shapes trims, creases, corners and folds were done manually. The artwork was hand drawn with water colour pencils and then treated in Photoshop. The RF emblem was created in Illustrator.
