entry #10: our STARLIGHT invitation inspiration

One look at the ‘Starlight‘ wedding invitation suite from our new Umi 2 album and you’ll be ready to get down and boogie the night away! Letterpress printed on 100% cotton rag paper, this mid-century inspired marvel features dynamic patterns and modern type that emphasize the depth and texture of this groovy design. We chose a fun color palette of light ‘Water’ blue and rich ‘Pumpkin’ orange, however, with a switch to deep ‘Concord’ purple and pale ‘Fog’ gray, this invitation would fab for a sophisticated evening affair. Take a look below at the inspiration behind this hip invitation suite, and come back again for more mood boards coming soon from our new Umi 2 album!
