Ambigram wedding invite for a couple of friends Pete and Sarah.
The main invite is the larger of the two, The evening invite being the smaller. Both were hand lettered with a dip pen and gillot 404 nib. Splashes and all mistakes wre included in the final design before going print, as the couple requested them. They felt it gave them a more personal hand done effect.
They were printed on very pale cream, this took away the starkness of the black and white and mellowed the colour.
I hand lettered the main invites when complete.
The Ambigram itself only took a couple of days to complete. First I sketched a few ideas on paper then began working them up. Once the final design was working I redrew it from scratch and then traced it and scanned it at a High resolution in Photoshop. I then Vectorised it in Fontlab, copied, pasted and rotated it. Finally Pasting it into Illustrator.
