Invitation Inspiration: Dirty Shoelaces

I worked on this invitation for a Bar Mitzvah party. The kid loved to play sports & we wanted to capture that in the invitation. Not only did it turn out to be unique, but hilarious with the dirty shoe laces!

Invitation Inspiration: All That Jazz

Post by: Tags: , , , , , , , — Jody on October 2, 2013

This week’s Invitation Inspiration board features the wedding of Stacey White and Sean Jones at Jay Verno Studios. Because Sean is a famous trumpet player, the invitation was influenced by the couple’s love of jazz and the vibe of New Orleans. The color really popped on this fold out invitation for guests! The wedding was coordinated with Sean Grey International, Allison McGeary Floral & Common Plea Catering.

Invite Spotlight: Marie & Matt’s Romance

At CREATE Studio, we want everyone’s experience to be a personalized one. That’s why every project starts with a complimentary consultation. Our goal is to take your vision and bring it to life!

With this in mind, Marie and Matt asked CREATE to design both their save the date and wedding invitation. They were excited about using their common initial “M” in clever ways that would tie in with their venue, the Mansion on Fifth, built at the height of Victoriana on Millionaire’s Row in Pittsburgh. Their other goal was to introduce all of their out of town guests to the city of Pittsburgh.

For the save the date, CREATE designed a beautiful “M” with a Victorian, wrought iron look and combined it with a turn of the century bridge to represent Pittsburgh, the “City of Bridges”. For the wedding invitation, the logo was laser cut out of silver and mounted to the center of the invitation to mirror the architectural Victorian motifs at the Mansion on Fifth.

A mix of exquisite pearlescent papers in peach, silver, opal, and an Italian pearl, floral embossed stock were wrapped together with a wide peach satin band to finish off this romantic invitation.

CREATE set the tone perfectly for a beautiful Victorian wedding today, but with all of the historic charm and romance from Pittsburgh’s heyday.

we at CREATE are always exploring the world in search of our next muse. often taking our cues from fashion and decor, we aim to both capture and enhance the images and patterns we see around us. above is an inspiration board where you can see the beginning elements coming together as a final product.  we started with color swatches, fashionable stripes and brightly painted fingernails and continued the thought into the invites with color and pattern. everyday inspirations have a profound effect on what we design.
