My best friend got married and I was asked to design the wedding invitation suite which included branding of couple’s initials into wedding mark, double-sided wedding invitations, accommodation cards, RSVP cards and seal stickers. The wedding itself was unique in that there were two separate events needing to fit and function on one single invitation. The ceremony and dinner party was held in LA and a lunch wedding party held in Chicago.
The invitation’s design was inspired by the wedding dinner party which was held in the historic Hotel Normandie in central Los Angeles. The venue has art deco, geometric architectural details and classic square tiled floors. Therefore the invitations were square in size with split directional design to differentiate the two different party’s information.
On the reverse of the information side, custom city illustrations were drawn to complement each of the two cities.
Gold foil emboss was applied to the navy and white two-tone design across the suite. The initial logo mark was then applied to stamps and stickers used for the wedding giveaway presents.
As a surprise I also designed wedding rehearsal dinner invitations and menus.
The project was hand-painted over the span of three days in my home.
These are some different typographic posters I designed. They are all large-format; ranging from 18"x24" to 24"x36". Posters were printed both digitally and by personally hand-pulling screen prints.
I painted two walls of the Magento Headquarters office in Culver City, California. I practice a free-hand taping style to allow a fluid, organic effect.
Bespoke illustration and hand-pulled screen print design onto a scratchplate for a retro Fender surfer-style guitar.
This was a collaborative project with three other friends. We painted a portion of the wall at a skate park in Mile End, London. The wall was a dense surface of graffiti; we wanted to change the aesthetic and create a somewhat ironic mural in the grungy, urban landscape. We painted a flower garden to create contrast to the graffiti. The garden was painted reminiscent to childlike painting styles. The mural was completed in one night.
