today for #tbt #fbf, i introduce the final piece of the illustrated wedding invitations! the envelope and postage stamp.
今日の #tbt #fbf は、イラスト風招待状シリーズの最終で、封筒をご紹介します！料金別納表示を特別にデザインいたしました。
working on this project, i had learned for the first time that designing an original postage stamp was even possible! how sweet is having your own wedding postage stamp?? my clients were so thrilled with how it turned out. when they took it to the post office, the postman even complimented them!
with this, i’ll be taking a break from posting the #tbt #fbf wedding series. in the meantime, i’ll be blurbing here and there, so please come by and check it out! 🙂
これを持って、しばらく #tbt #fbf の ウェディングシリーズをお休みします。他の作品のご紹介やブログも書いていきますので、是非是非見にいらしてください⭐︎
often times i see invitations that use the map straight off of a venue’s website. which is fine, but it doesn’t always match the theme of the invite itself and just doesn’t seem to fit in. it’s very simple to re-work a map and i really believe that this attention to such a minor detail will take an invitation set to a different level.
for this access card, i spent a lot of time reproducing the Guggenheim House in digital illustration form. it is somewhat monotonous, but so much fun (for me at least!) to repeatedly draw lines and shapes evenly. call me crazy, but it’s so therapeutic! 🙂
when starting the design process for wedding invitations, sometimes i may start with all the pieces altogether from the get go, but this time i started with the invite itself to set the tone of the entire set. to tie in with the save the date, i continued the series with illustrated elements.
hi world!! it’s that time of week! #tbt #fbf post this week, is in continuation of the save the date from last week. for the wedding invitation we decided to concentrate on a warm hand-drawn feel with more food and drink elements. today i want to show you the overall look and introduce up-close views in the following weeks.

with any of my wedding items, the bride and groom are fully involved in the design process. i make sure to include as many of their requests in the final product. this series is also one of those, and it is my pleasure and honor to be able to provide something that helps them share their dreams with their family and friends.
why hello! it’s that time of the week again! this week on the #tbt #fbf post, i’m going to talk about PRE mr. banana leaf. as in, the wedding invitations for the mr. banana leaf wedding.
ハロー！早速、今週の #tbt #fbf は、バナナリーフくんウェディングの招待状のお話し。
as i mentioned before, the couple lived in singapore. they fell in love with the green tropical foliage there and wanted to put that into their wedding invitation. especially the feel when you gaze up at the greenery and see rays of sunlight shining through.
from time to time, i like to use my photography in my art work. sometimes collaging with the photo itself, and often times a trace work of something i’ve taken. this time, it was a combination of both, collaging the tracings. i used a couple of photos of greenery that i had taken on vacation just before this invitation.
this week on the #tbt #fbf blog, i bring to you a custom logo wedding invitation. it was an absolute pleasure to work with this couple, as they share the same taste as myself when it comes to colors, fonts, and simplicity.
the key points of this invitation’s design ／ デザインのキーポイントは:
1. wedding colors: olive, orange, and natural colored paper
2. a letterpress friendly design (the main invitation is printed with letterpress)
3. a simple logo for the “title” of their wedding “S+H”
the couple loved the logo!! so they used it every chance they could throughout their wedding, which i will introduce in the coming weeks. since the actual invitation was printed in letterpress, i decided to take advantage of the depth and expanded the logo to cover the whole background of the inside. by using a lighter color, bolder line, and bigger size it allows the eye to focus on the front dimension (the invitation details).
when i work with invitation sets, i like to think of how the entire set looks put together. each individual card is important on it’s own (and can have varying design elements), but it’s like an equation that needs to add up to 100 in terms of color, layout, and especially in this case, geometric elements.
