Pastiche Design embraces the opportunity to work on custom projects, providing unique designs as distinctive as your style. Below is an example of a design based on a theme.
This collection was inspired by the bride and groom’s desire to have their very own monogram. The monogram on this set is the focal point of the wedding invitation, and was used it throughout on the “save the dates”, wedding web site, RSVP, and even on elements at the event itself. While it looks simple, the monogram took me a long time to get just right. It was outside of my comfort zone, and a completely different design aesthetic than my own. I tried layering different parts of the letterforms before getting it just right. I wanted the letterforms to feel connected, as if one couldn’t live without the other. I also wanted them to “hug” one another. After several iterations, I finally came up with the mark you see on this set. Leaving the “c” outline, while filling the “a” in was another design decision that would pay subtle homage to the union of two very different people, uniting as one.
The invitation uses the monogram as the main design element. The accompanying typography only enhances the traditional and very elegant feel. We carried the design throughout the RSVP, programs and wedding sign that was used to greet guests at the reception. The invitation itself was engraved, and has the raised printed quality you would expect from a formal union.
Whether you’re planning a wedding, birthday party, baby or bridal shower, we can help create a theme and use it throughout the event. If interested in personalizing an existing design, we can help with that too! We encourage you to contact us if you want to collaborate on a custom project.
