Carmen + Tj’s Bilingual Topographic Map Wedding Invitations

Kathleen from & Kathleen Design always gets to design the coolest wedding invitations.  Today, she’s here to share one of her most recent projects – a bilingual wedding invitation suite with a topographic map detail!  In addition to cool topography, Kathleen incorporated bright colors and fresh font selections to keep the overall design bright and modern.

From KathleenI created these modern, travel-inspired, and bilingual wedding invitations for Carmen and TJ.  Carmen works as an urban designer and her father is a geographer – the love of maps runs in her family.  She specified that she loves bright color and wanted a sharp, contemporary feel to her wedding invitations.

Together we brainstormed and decided to use graphic elements from a topographical map of Ohio, where Carmen & TJ are getting married.  I didn’t want Carmen and TJ’s wedding invitations to look too technical or literal so I played with scale and color throughout the suite.

I used a modern color combination of lime green and gray and printed the invitations on a textured laid stock which brings a tactile element to the design and keeps the invitation design from feeling too stark.

    Jessica – These are actually the second set of bilingual invites I’ve designed. I look forward to doing more!

  3. I really like this stationery. That texture is just awesome! So it’s not layered paper, it’s just a unique stock? Very cool! What’s that font in the “please reply”, by the way? Thanks for sharing!
