Congratulations to Luke & Ned on their wedding in our fair city this weekend! We started working with them on their Save the Date cards, which followed our Hudson design, and featured an iconic NYC landmark, the Chrysler Building. Their design of their invitation set was inspired by the border of our Downtown design, mixed with the classic text treatment of Laurel Wreath. The additional New York themed illustrations are a perfect fit for this black tie wedding at The Bowery Hotel.
Fairly often, we have an engaged couple take a look at our work and fall in love with two wedding suites. In this case, Jenny & Michael picked our Hudson and Vintage NYC designs, and we found a way to merge the two. They loved the modern type choices of one, and the New York city details of another. In the end, the design looked perfect for their NYC wedding - classy, but fun!
We've printed a few London weddings featuring tinted letterpressed illustrations related to the British capital. So we thought we would add a new design that incorporates the New York skyline for all the Manhattan weddings we work on!
This design uses a really clear, sans serif font which perfectly complements the graphic silhouette of the NY skyline:
The use of a very pale tinted ink on the motif really intensifies the letterpress effect and makes the image appear almost like a shadow. The result is an invitation that is both classy and understated.
