One of the things I’ve been working on this last month, in addition to some new freelance projects, is updating my online portfolio.
Here’s a quick sample:
A lot of my design work last winter revolved around (no surprise to any designers reading!) my own wedding, which took place in February. I kept the invitations very simple and traditional, but since we were getting married on Valentine’s Day, that gave me a very clear design direction.
But the great part is that they were also super cheap to produce, since I had them color-laserprinted onto plain white card stock at FedEx Office and cut into quarters. The RSVP return card was a postcard (printed double-sided but black only), which also saved on return envelopes. The whole ensemble, with envelopes, ended up costing only about a dollar per invitation — not counting the postage (for which we ordered the supremely cool Miles Davis commemorative stamps, appropriate to our jazz-club venue).
Tomorrow’s post will be a detailed case study of another essential design piece in a Jewish wedding — our ketubah. Stay tuned!
