Wedding Invitation for Wieke and Cortez by KartoeWedding Invitation for Wieke and Cortez by Kartoe


CLIENT

Wieke and Cortez are a love­ly cou­ple from Indone­sia and Amer­i­ca respec­tive­ly, who were get­ting hitched in Sin­ga­pore. They specif­i­cal­ly chose to wed at a restau­rant in Sin­ga­pore that is right in the mid­dle of an island sur­round­ed by a vast for­est of trees.


BRIEF

They want­ed us to illus­trate their sto­ry in a com­i­cal­ly abstract for­mat, from the day they met in Bali until the day they decid­ed to get mar­ried. They want­ed to explore water­col­ored illus­tra­tions and nature-inspired papers, which strong­ly rep­re­sent their nature-lov­ing per­son­al­i­ties.


APPROACH

The team was try­ing to trans­late the couple’s sto­ries and nature-lov­ing per­son­al­i­ties into their wed­ding sta­tionery. The clients had specif­i­cal­ly request­ed to have four major phas­es of their sto­ries to be told in water­col­or paint­ings with­out look­ing too child­ish. We came up with an accor­dion style invite that fea­tures their water­col­ored paint­ings and the wood-tex­tured papers on both of their sta­tionery cov­ers and enve­lope for that back-to-nature look.

PRODUCTION LESSONS

When we tried to foil-stamp the black foil onto the Savannah paper, it was so highly textured that the foil appeared cracked on the surface. We managed to solve the issue by printing black ink on the Savanna paper and stamping the printed area with transparent foil for consistency.
