Dylan + Emilio
Project: Wedding suite

Printing methods: Matte Gold foil, Letterpress and digitally printed floral imagery
Collaborators: Smitten on Paper
This was such a fun project to source and design! Our friend and former designer, Dylan of Serif Print Co., wanted to create a tactile, romantic and earthy suite for her big day. The wedding took place in Australia, where both Dylan and Emilio grew up, so we incorporated natural elements and nods to Australian native plants and flowers. Warm tan, rust and earthy green were a perfect neutral color palette to work within.
Dylan chose a beautiful handmade paper stock with dark grey letterpress printing. Touches of matte gold foil throughout the suite bring a spark of minimal glamour. The playful eucalyptus and protea illustrations in the envelope liner are nods to the foliage of native Australia.
Adding cards of varying colors, textures and shapes keeps the whole suite loose and modern while still feeling cohesive. All the pieces are kept together with an extra wide vellum belly band tied with rust silk ribbon.
