The last post featured Catania. The Catania is our carnival wedding stationery collection is inspired by carnivals and fun fairs and this a follow on post (see the last one here). This post expands upon the last one which showed of a booklet invitation version of Catania by showing some alternative colour scheme ideas.
Catania has fair ground rides in the foreground as silhouettes. These include a roller coaster, ferris wheel, merry go round, tunnel of love and more as well as fair ground tents, stalls and balloons. Behind the rides in the original design went a sunset. This was showed in the last post and above this paragraph. However the colours can be changed to suit our clients needs. This post shows some alternative colour and font ideas.
Our first two ideas have a black foreground and purple and brown colour gradients behind. There is also an a different font used on the purple idea. This is Galleria – the previous wedding booklet photo showed Algerian D.
Black is a very easy colour for the foreground. Grey would also work well and isn’t a big leap as shown in the beneath example with a red background. This particular example is used as a table name tent. The more chunky font is Belwe Bd BT and the thinner font is Univrsty Roman Bd BT. Both serif fonts but packed with character. You don’t need to stick to black or grey or though as a foreground colour. Click the image if you want to see it larger.
In the next example a dark red colour has been used with a light green behind and light blue for the wording. This example is a place name. Finally we revert to a traditional design with a slightly different sky behind. This one featuring a sunset but also a blue sky.
Any colours we can print we can use, it’s really down to what our clients like. Likewise the choice of fonts can set the tone of anything from fun, to modern or vintage.
