  1. Wedding Invite

    Leave a Comment

    The Minneapolis designers Ned Wright and Laura Belle were married a couple months back in a small backyard ceremony. Both being designers, it made sense that they started their journey as man and wife by collaboratively designing the invitations for their big day.

    It was printed by the wonderful Beast Pieces.

    This piece was designed by the Philadelphia based designer and illustrator Greg Christman to celebrate the birth of his son, Oliver.

    It was beautifully letterpress printed by the good people at Rise and Shine.

  3. Letterpress Wedding Invites

    Came across these lovely pieces over multiple design blogs a few months ago but they are just so good that it is well worth repeating.

    It is a letterpress wedding invite for a couple named Lisa and Marty. They have been designed by Three Steps Ahead.

    The use of the “modern” colours with this traditional method of printing is simply beautiful.

    Just  came across some great work by the London based designer Andy Cooke.

    Andy’s typography work is incredible simply because it ranges from calligraphy to letterpress as well as his clean identity marks.

    Before getting into graphics, I studied product design, I hated it. I failed at it. But, I graduated with first class honours this year with a degree in graphic design, and was lucky enough to secure a job before I left university. I also had work published in grafik, creative review, computer arts and design week before the point of graduation. This gave me a great advantage, and was a major reason why I got my junior designer job at London based design agency Erasmus. I’ve been working on some amazing projects since then, for clients like Powerade and Tetra Pak, Relentless and Bowel Cancer UK. I’ve been given loads of trust since starting and I’ve been the main designer on a few big projects.

    A very simple, yet effective, letterpress identity designed by London based design studio A2/SW/HK for Cubitt.

    Cubitt is an independent organisation controlled by its members: a community of over 30 artists dedicated to enlivening London’s cultural communities. Cubitt upholds the importance of the artist-run space, and by virtue of its diverse studio, gallery and off-site activities, continues to promote national and international developments in visual culture. These comprise exhibitions, performances, screenings, symposia, talks given by artists, critics or curators as well as educational projects.

    I love how the ‘C’ changes when applied to the stationary of the organisation.
