The blogging has been a bit thin on the ground of late as have been on a roller coaster ride of wedding fairs and sample making. Not to mention starting design work for some great new clients. That’s really exciting and looking forward to seeing how their stationery turns out. Today though I thought I’d briefly explain one of the new collections that’s now on the website. That is the Geometry bespoke wedding stationery collection.
The stationery collection
The Geometry collection is a bit different from most of the other stationery collections. Most of the collections on the site are based around a singular design. Bits can be added or taken away but there is essentially that core design. Eg if you got rid of the pattern band in Capri it really wouldn’t be Capri (click to visit) anymore!
Geometry is different though. You might be gathering from the pictures in this post. It’s a collection of different ideas around a geometry and maths theme where shapes and pattern is a core part of the design. All of the ideas shown can be used with any of our great wedding invitation or day stationery types (which you can see here). Also the stationery photographed is more meant to illustrate the possibilities rather than be a definitive list. So if you fancy something with more squares or circles for example then get in contact.
This is similar to the approach with the Natale collection. I’ve taken this approach as at this stage as without developing several full collections, making and then photographing them it’s a way to illustrate what can be done. Plus it’s a chance to see how popular these types of designs might be.
Time to talk about the stationery in the images shown here!
The Big One!
Well the largest of the invitations is a Trifold invitation is a design made with two lines of symmetry – vertical and horizontal. It goes from one colour to another. I like it as it feels quite dynamic and depending on quite how you look at the triangles are going in different directions. Inside the invitation the pattern extends across all three panels outwards from the central panel.
The cheque book looking one
The Cheque book style invitation has lots of triangles at its core. Then I’ve tried to move from a white corner to a more pastel peach colour while bringing in other complimentary colours. It’s got quite a modern art feel to it I think. This type of design would be great where there are a lot of colours to be included or there is not set colour scheme for a wedding or event. I’ve been showing this item at recent wedding fairs and it does get a lot of attention.
The circular one!
The final item shown in this post is a Bifold invitation. It is a type of invitation that is a smaller version of the trifold having one less part than the trifold but made in the same way. With an outer part having the cover design and rear on and then square panels glued to the inside with invitation text, more information and a detachable RSVP. The design itself was based on an idea that occurred to me around New Years eve. The inspiration being a clock face, like big ben (ok I know that’s the bell but you know what I mean) and fireworks. This design really works well with the simple style of art deco fonts. As I said in a previous post I am really excited by it!
I may have gone a bit geometric mad just seeing the title images for several of my last posts! Will try and talk about something else next time. But you can find out prices and see the Geometry collection on my main wedding site here stationery: visit Artemis Stationery
