SARAH & JON’S
CLIENT: SARAH POWELL
SERVICES: WEDDING STATIONERY DESIGN
If someone comes to me asking for wedding invitations, it generally means they want something different. And by different, I mean something that isn’t floral with a hand written brush script, as would be the norm according to Pinterest.
I’d previously worked with Sarah’s husband-to-be, Jon Hillcock (BBC 6 Music DJ / Music Blogger), on a number of his music-centric outlets, and my use of bright colours and gig poster aesthetics fell in line with what she wanted for her wedding stationery.
Going through an initial round of designs that lead with strong halftone graphics and complex layer styles, we actually ended up somewhere a little different…
A strong isometric typeface was paired with 3 key colours, used across the various deliverables to add some variety to the stationery. The finished product was bright, bold and mininal – but perfect for this particular couple and their wedding.
