Originally designed with a giant hibiscus flower, KIKI’s large square letterpress invitation is a favorite for Hawaiian, Caribbean, beach and destination weddings.

The kind folks at Gmund paper recently sent some samples of their freshest lines and one stock in particular jumped out at me — this amazing faux wood-grained paper!

I designed this invitation for an event that was inspired by stunning destinations around the world.  Costa Rica was one of the chosen destinations where the lush rainforest and the fun, vibrant patterns of the Costa Rican culture inspired the design.  For the invitation I created a hand stitched book with three layers of pattern, the middle layer being printed on vellum for added depth and interest_NICHOLE.

21. Kendall and Lance Wedding Invitations

Kendall and Lance were wonderful to work with.  They both have such unique styles, it was easy to be inspired by them.  Their colors are gray and navy, and their wedding (it’s coming up soon!) will have vintage styling.  They got engaged by the  Savannah River here in Augusta, hence the river/tree imagery.  They pretty much let me have free reign, smiling serenely when I babbled on about deconstructed envelopes and hand-lettering and screen printing.

Both the bride and groom are from Rajasthan where puppet shows in traditional dress are quite well known.Hence, portraying the new couple as ‘puppets’ sounded like a nice idea and became the central theme of their wedding poster invite.

40. Jeff and Lisa

Jeff and Lisa are an amazing couple; hilarious, attractive, and totally crazy.They sent me some examples of designs they’d liked in part, including some avian imagery, natural textures and so forth. I did my best to distill their ideas into a modern design that complimented their style and personality.The birds are a tribute to the Charles and Ray Eames design. It works perfectly with the hand drawn wood grain.
