Design Diaries: Painted Dance

We created this fun elaborate invitation suite we aptly named 'Painted Dance' for a recent styled shoot. As you may have guessed the invitation as inspired by 'La La Land', in particular the observatory scene which was set on a hill over LA as the sun was setting. The stunning purple sunset was the main element used as the background of the invitation.

We stuck to bold saturated happy colours which ties in with the movie theme with a mix of orchid, violet, navy and watermelon. Star constellations were added throughout the invite to reflect the observatory. The final piece added was the happy dancing couple on the front of the gatefold invitation. We then carried through the theme with different illustrations of the couple onto other elements of the stationery including the table numbers and table plan. We just love how fun this invitation suite is.

Our favourite element from the invitation suite is the painted dancing couple featuring on the invitation gatefold and throughout the suite. The colour of the hair and clothes of the couple can be altered to suit you and your partner.

While the overall feel to the invitation suite was fun and vibrant, the painted couples gives it an romantic twist. We really loved how this combination ended up working together.

A huge thank you to Olga Hogan Photography for all of the lovely images.
