Marin’s Mucha Inspired Invites

Marin’s Mucha Inspired Invites

... yes I used the Simpson's address. I didn't want to transpose another set of addresses!

 I designed these invitations for my cousin’s sweet 16. They invites were inspired by the artwork of Alphonse Mucha, which I can stare at for hours. The party was loosely inspired by art nouveau and art deco, turn of the century france, etc. The artwork in the invitation is definitely art nouveau, but the bob on the girl is more 20’s. I had a really hard time not being bothered by this, so I managed to convince myself that it was just a hodge-podge of eras, and that made it more modern and “inspired”, as opposed to being truly authentic. The girl was drawn by hand, then traced in illustrator, then colored in photoshop, then brought back into illustrator for formatting and text. If you follow me on IG, I posted many in-progress photos. It was a lot of work! And I didn’t want to stop. I tell you, I could have worked on it for another week, and I would still probably not be satisfied! But, they really needed to get in the mail, so… I had to be finished! Isn’t that how it always is? :)

  3. […] Laelia’s mother, Jesyka (of Visual Vocabulary), is like my bff family member, if that makes any sense. We met when she and Tyler first began dating after an extended friendship and immediately I knew we were perfect for each other. She is amazingly talented, super intelligent and fun so obviously we get along smashingly. She is also an integral part in anything party around here and is responsible for creating incredible custom invitations, like the most recent she did for Marin’s sweet 16 party. […]
