I’m getting married in the morning…….. well so to speak, but not this one! It’s so exciting, especially as we want to do as much as we can for ourselves. We’d like the kind of wedding that is personal and unique (suppose many couples want this too!), generally tailor made for us and I’ve started with finding lots of research in magazines and design blogs. One in particular that I check out on a regular basis is Behance Here are a few wedding stationery ideas that I just love!

Wedding Stationery

These designs are by Elina Rubuliak.

These next two designs are by Naomi Francois.

In contrast to the above, I love this more decorative look. The next set of designs are by Alisa Bobzien.

The next set of wedding stationery designs are hand-drawn by Monique Welker, and I love the slender hand rendered text. They are also uncomplicated with nice use of white space in the background.

Monique Welker has also designed this range too. Just gorgeous!

Scott Wilson’s designs in the next stationery set are feminine and pretty, yet not too fluffy and girlie!

In the next set of designs, Ross Ellis has made emphasis on the bride & groom to be. He’s kept to a vintage feel and used photography – nice touch!

 

Inspirational Moodboards

As inspiration for the wedding, I’ve started to look on and get regular emails from snippetandink They provide you with moodboards, displaying; colour stories, wedding attire, flowers, general themes and accessories. You can also search through their archive section to find more more wonderful and exciting ideas!

Here are just a few moodboards as a taster. They range from a fun and sparkly Vegas theme, sophisticated black shell colours to a vintage pink and green feel. I found it difficult to select just a few!

Hello there! I am back again, after taking time out to complete a three month course in Graphic Design at Shillington College.

That kept me seriously busy, whilst I gained competency in the Adobe Creative Suite (CS5.5), honed my existing design skills and gained new ones.

Take a look at my online portfolio. It is a culmination of the work I undertook on the course and demonstrates the different disciplines and variety of briefs that we were given.

I completed a number of short projects, such as branding and logo design, packaging design. I laid out and typeset a magazine article and designed its masthead and front cover. I also designed a poster for a film festival.

One of the longer projects was an annual report (for Herman Miller Furniture), which I worked on from start to finish, producing the concept design and layout for the pages within.

During the research from the briefs, I found out about the work from various different designers and gained inspiration from a few; Darren Newman (for illustration and typography), Jessica Hische (for typography) and Alice Pattullo (illustrator – 1880’s style poster design, amongst other great stuff).

There will be more from me soon and don’t forget, you can find me on Twitter, too!

The images in this gallery are NOT my own. They are images which have, in part, whole or conceptually, inspired some of my work.
The name of the owner of the images is in the image name (and therefore, the caption).

Where possible, I have put links to the owners’ web sites at the foot of this post.
