Two landscape architects with a preference for remarkable printed matter asked us to design their wedding invitation.
From the inside out, a lowercase ‘f’ evolves into a capital ‘F’, which then evolves into the coastline of Scotland. We united the first letters of the lovers’ names, their shared love of ‘the landscape’ and geographical maps, and the wedding location on the Scottish coast in one design. The outside of the pattern continues on the back, where the location is marked by a dot on the coast and described in coordinates. The lines refer to the contour lines of a hilly landscape, characteristic of Scotland, where the wedding was held.
The card is executed in classic matte coloured paper with a metallic foil printing. From a certain angle the lines almost disappear, while from another angle they are brightly shining, providing maximum contrast. This effect represents both the influence of different weather conditions on the Scottish landscape and the various manifestations of love. Festive and soft, expressive and modest.
The usage of duplex made the card extra sturdy (2x 300 gr/m2). The text is not ink-based, but rendered visible by laser engraving. While the geographic lines provide some texture on top of the card, the engraved text gives some depth below the surface. This creates a subtle, tactile effect, inviting you to touch it.
