I was asked to design a Wedding Invitation. I arrived at this design having received a free sample of washing powder posted through my door. I don't like the traditional wedding invitation and everything in this picture has a reference to how I see marriage.
The cartoon image is intended to make the wedding seem joyful (which it is). The ovals behind the cartoon are only there to bring the image forward, but the blue and pink stripes represent wallpaper in a lounge (traditionally mixing blue for a boy and pink for a girl). The green and orange squares are the kitchen table (we used to have such a pattern). All the text may appear to be gently attacking, but is both factual and traditional. After all, isn't marriage a bright relationship?
