The couple wanted a rustic and rugged invitation to their wedding. They had provided clips of how they would like the layout, the colors and even the paper it was to be printed on. The map was part of the requirement. Both bride and groom were avid mountain-climbers so I started with the carabiner and decided to use icons and mountain gear symbols in the layout of the invite. Using only three different font types, and playing with Illustrator, we were able to come up with a design which pretty much describes the couple.
In partnership with Noodles, my sister, the invites were topped with a compass, the give-aways were honeycomb boxes with a bottle of honey. The design in the invitation was replicated in all other items in the wedding.
