I recently had the privilege to design a wedding invitation for my good friends Melanie and Jason. Melanie was my freshman year roommate at Providence College and I’ve been fortunate to call her a friend ever since. In October of this year Melanie and Jason will marry at the Glen Cove Mansion in New York. The bride asked that the invitations reflect the elegance and historic nature of this Georgian-style estate that will be their venue.
Like most graphic designers I have a special place in my heart for typography. Whether designing a website or a wedding invitation, one of the most time-consuming challenges for me can be finding two typefaces that really compliment one another. This article by designmodo offers some really well-excuted type pairings from around the web. I’m especially loving the Europa/Garamond pairing from exposure.co.
