I'm taking a total break from the norm today, to share something completely different than anything I've done on here before. A few months ago, I was contacted by an old friend to draw her wedding invitations. I know it's in my "bio", but I was a drawing major in college, and drawing/doodling is one of my favorite things to do. I especially love coming up with new fonts. So, needless to say, I was down!
Brittany sent me some moodboards she'd made, and they were all beautiful and really unique. Her wedding was going to be "a desert mod kind of theme", and one of the major inspirations for the invites was Jim Flora cartoons. Brittany is also the lead singer of "The Bridges", which is a very talented (and beautiful) family band based out of Nashville. Needless to say, she's a creative spirit, so I had fun interpreting what she wanted for the invites!
Here are the moodboards:
Here was an example she sent me of fonts that she liked:
My drawing and writing is a lot more organic than blocky fonts, but I still wanted to try and incorporate it.
Here is a Jim Flora cartoon...you can see the moon-shaped drawings that I also incorporated.
and here is what I came up with!
hope you enjoyed! have a great weekend.
