Happy Monday everyone! We’re starting off the week with a sweet illustrated wedding save the date by NYC-based designer and photographer Matthew Novak. Matthew’s clients, Mark and Laicie, are planning a fall wedding on a farm in California, so Matthew created a light hearted design inspired in part by a camping permit and in part by the wedding location!
From Matt: Mark and Laicie are getting married on a farm in California, but have a love for camping and the outdoors. We decided to create a save the date that was inspired by a camping permit.
We played with the wording a bit to make sure it was light hearted and fun. I had received a rough pencil sketch of what the farmhouse looked like. I used this as a guideline to create the farmhouse illustration on the bottom of the save the date.
I love letterpress, so the decision to go in that direction was easy. The third “color” – a blind (inkless) impression – really helped sell the permit style by creating dividers throughout the whole piece.
