'Tis the season for another Minted.com challenge. This time - save-the-dates! Here are a couple of submissions I've been working on this week. I'll let you know when it's voting time!
Whew! What a week! 'Tis the season of love and wedding invitations! This week I'm posting the second in a series of wedding invitations inspired by British fabric patterns. Today we take a look at pinstripe. Most often associated with the business attire of men's suits, pintripe is making appearances in more fashion-forward designs (see the plethora in Milan's 2013 spring fashion week!)
In this wedding invitation, pinstripe maintains a low, classic profile in shades of charcoal and light gray, with elegant serif and script lettering. The less-conventional diamond shape in the background lends a modern edge to the otherwise traditional motif, and pairs with a charcoal chalkboard envelope liner for the perfect blend of old guard and avante garde.
Tweed makes me think of rainy mornings, thick socks, and shelves full of books to read and nothing better to do than read them. It also makes me think of London, which occupies a very fond place in my heart. Seven weeks there for a study abroad program in college and I was sunk.
To celebrate all things UK, I'm developing a new line of wedding stationery inspired by timeless British fabric patterns, which are often repeated in fashion and, dare I venture, should be in paper too. First in the lineup: Tweed. This particular wedding invitation design in muted shades of white, light gray and charcoal, is heavily traditional, but pairs well with popular trends like chalkboard (seen in the envelope liner) and cheery script fonts. Voila: Best of both the classic and trendy worlds in one swoop.
