I worked with Anna on creating a suite of stationery for her upcoming wedding. Starting with her brief of “modern calligraphy style table names, place names and a seating plan”, we collaborated via her Pinterest inspiration boards and settled on striking white on navy wedding stationery with a combination of brush lettering and pointed pen modern calligraphy for the various bits and pieces:
For the seating chart, we chose a combination of brush lettering with printed names for clarity arranged alphabetically under their tables. While I think calligraphed names look gorgeous, there is something to be said for simplicity when it comes to guiding people to their seat. My husband is constantly telling me he can’t read my calligraphy, so you do have to factor that element if you need people to be moving through quickly.
I used the same brush lettered style for the double-sided table names, while the place cards were striking in their simplicity featuring pointed pen modern calligraphy.
