When you are a graphic designer marrying an industrial designer, the expectation for your wedding collateral is pretty high. Pinterest, was not an option. Our reception was held at Cincinnati Union Terminal, an iconic art deco train station that is now a museum. We embraced the the art deco style and let it be our inspiration while keeping it timeless and classic.
As with any wedding, there was a lot of printed collateral: invitations, thank you's, programs, etc. We wanted to maintain our modern art deco style and always combine type with imagery to create a unique experience.
We made homemade wine as our wedding favors and screen printed
144 bottles by hand with a "Thanks" graphic I created.
Each table was named after an address where we've lived during our time as a couple. We wanted our centerpieces to be unique so we printed the map of the address on clear vinyl and wrapped it around a glass vase. The red candle helped legibility and kept it on "brand."
A centerpoint for communication was our website mereandmatt.us that held all our important information. We designed a single-page scrolling experinse that utilized Parallax effects to reveal bigger imagery to 'shorten' the webpage.
