Overview

 

A couple needed invitations and a website for their impending wedding. I applied the same design theme to other elements for their big day.

Concept

Since the bride shared her pinterest board with me, it was easy to create a style tile for her wedding. Themes that emerged on her boards were“1930’s ocean liners”, and polka-dots. When she mentioned the idea of using balloons in a wedding invitation, I ran with it and used them throughout my designs to tie everything together.

Website

 

The first version of the site used parallax scrolling so that balloons carried up elements as the user scrolled down. But the site was too dependent on the effect and I scrapped it in favor of a WordPress version that the couple could update easily and was also responsive for phone and tablet users.

 

I used CSS to create a letterpress effect to some of the text. There is no substitute for the tangible effect of the real thing, but it sure is cheaper.

Invitations

I created cartoon characters of the couple and used them in several versions of the invitations.

Beer Labels

The groom decided to brew beer for the occasion. Personally, I forget the types of beer, so I thought the floating balloon indicator was a nice way to tie in the balloon theme and show how dark the beer is.

Since he narrowed down the list of beers to two, I created two larger growler bottles featuring their beloved dog and cat. I managed to sneak the balloons in as bubbly texture.
