As we approach the one year anniversary of some dear friends, another 2012 project throwback is in order.
We shared a sneak peak of Bob and Grace’s marriage announcements last year, but never the final project. The couple had a small, intimate city hall wedding in Cambridge, just before graduating from their respective graduate programs and also moving. The announcements were a catchall update for friends and family.
To keep printing and shipping costs low, we opted for a flat card; to keep the piece intact in the mail, we included matching ivory envelopes.
On the card front, we utilized a series of three shots captured by photographer Hannah Persson on the steps of Cambridge City Hall. We pulled the wallpaper in the courtroom, visible in the “kiss photo” captured by a friend in attendance that was used on the verso, and created a vector file in Illustrator to draw the pattern into the card front background.
The back of the card featured the couple’s message as well as the crowd favorite kiss photo.
Happy almost-one-year, kids! Here’s to many, many more.
