Sarah + Jordan’s Illustrated Show Bill Wedding Invitations

Kentucky-based graphic designer Austin Dunbar is more used to designing concert posters for Chromeo, Toro Y Moi, Cold War Kids, Xiu Xiu, and Tokyo Police Club than wedding invitations, but he was definitely up for the challenge! For Sarah and Jordan’s wedding invitations, Austin incorporated hand drawn illustrations that showcased their personalities and unique style. Too cute!

From Austin: Sarah and Jordan asked me to design the invitations for their upcoming wedding. They wanted something unique that showcased their personalities. Both are lots of fun and have quirky things that are staples to each of them. Jordan sports a 5 o’clock shadow and always wears a newsboy cap while Sarah has tattoos of ropes and swallows. I thought this imagery would be fun to illustrate and would reflect their lifestyle.

Watercolors, markers, kraft paper and hand drawn illustrations gave the piece a unique, light hearted feel. Having designed gig-posters for years, I wanted to invitation to look more like a show bill than a typical invitation.
