Design Revisit: Beyond Forever Wedding Invitation Set

I designed this Wedding Invitation earlier this year as a Printable Wedding Invitation. It was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend of mine over coffee in which she jokingly said 'Forever is for Quitters', thus 'Till Death Do Us Part is for Quitters' came to mind. I've always wanted to design a more tongue-in-cheek Wedding invitation, something for an offbeat bride like myself would've gone for.

I initially envisioned a more simplistic look for the design, something that could be done through Letterpress.
ORIGINAL DESIGN - January 2012

I decided to revisit the Wedding Invitation once again as I felt that the original design didn't reflect the vision I had for the suite. The redesign is definitely bolder, graphically speaking and much more contained than the original suite.

Hello, World.

I finally got around to getting a blog for The Paper Paramour. This blog will be home to my works in progress, inspiration and everyday life. I look forward to sharing my process with you but before that, allow me to introduce myself and how I got around to starting my humble shop. :)

My Work Studio

I am a 28 year old Graphic Designer and Print Production Manager from Redmond, Washington which is about a 20 minute drive from Seattle. In my spare time, I sing lead vocals for a local band called Soul Candy, playing shows at japanese animation conventions and festivals. This year was a special one as I begin my new role as mother to my first child, Neela Isabelle.
