In a classic tale of design and romance, two unsuspecting designers take a college drawing class, meet over the pencil sharpener, fall in love, decide to marry, and then design one very memorable wedding invitation around their chance encounter. (We say it was destiny.)
Our bride-and-groom designers first mailed guests a save-the-date announcement that included a pencil laser engraved with their tagline: “A Celebration of Love and Art.” (The couple married in a visual arts center.) Each subsequent collateral piece utilized the pencil in some way.
The formal invite had an illustrated connect-the-dots portrait of the couple for guests to complete. I loved the vertical accordion fold set up on this piece that could easily double as a poster.
Guests also go the chance to use the pencil to send a personal message or drawing on the back of the RSVP cards, which were displayed at the wedding reception. Even the thank you cards featured an intricate maze that spelled “Thanks” once the pattern was finished with the pencil.
Cougar Text and Cover was used throughout the suite giving it a smooth feel that complemented the refreshing palette of cool blue and bright green.
