i designed a simple wedding invite for a close friend who is getting hitched later this year. the end product is actually different colours (plum and navy blue to match her wedding theme) & printed on brown paper. i’m quite partial to the green / blue / yellow combo. the only prerequisite for the design was that she wanted birds and nothing formal & stuffy. it’s pretty long, but folds down to fit into a standard envelope.
i’m happy to say they are very pleased with their little invite :)

aaaah, cut outs! love the work of illustrator kate slater. but what really, really swayed me (besides her talent) is this pride & prejudice poster she did for her sister’s birthday. it’s my favourite quote too! i laugh just thinking about it.
(think the 1995 BBC, not the keira knightley version… )
