Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred nine}


We’re obsessed with this visual! Graphic chalkboard typography never gets old. The control and creativity of the artist is simply perfection! The mix of fonts has us dreaming of a type inspired wedding invitation – our Auburn and Stinson suites are perfect examples of type as the focal point.

Suite Spotlight – Beechwood Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitation

The letterpress printed wood grain pattern of our large square Beechwood invitation is the standout element on this Bar Mitzvah design. Used throughout the suite in buttercream ink, the wood grain pattern is artfully paired with a wide cocoa colored backer card, a green tea pocket folder and woodblock typeface. On both the inspiration board and final printed suite, a masculine, yet playful look is achieved.

Such a great use of typography over this landscape photograph! We love the message too, especially on Valentine’s Day. What does “and so … the adventure begins” mean to you? What adventure are you beginning today? Marriage? Wedding planning? Wedding stationery design? Your wedding day? Or maybe all of the above!

Have an inspiring weekend!
