Every now and then I get a little creatively drained (“What? Me?! Never.”) and I head on over to FPO (For Print Only) for some design rejuvenation. While I fully admit I should follow the blog a lot more closely, it’s always a treat to scroll through what I’ve missed all in one shot when I’m really felling design flat lined. The other day, I found an incredibly tasty treat that I needed to share with you guys because I’m absolutely head over heels. You remember how much I love invitations with great type, right?
Designed by Rabe & Co. and printed by Fiddlesticks Press, the invites were inspired by menus from some of the couple’s favorite restaurants. They were also influenced by the venue – a restored factory called the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, which is an absolutely incredible space.
Anyone who works with my knows how much I love my rule lines. They make this piece so easy to visually navigate, but also look fantastic in the pinstripe patterning in the background. The off-register type is a total heart stopper, and the ink color combination is a little more unexpected but romantic nonetheless.
