Keep calm and marry John
This was every designer's nightmare brief - create an invitation for the wedding of two close friends. John and Sarah wanted to avoid all of the romantic cliches associated with wedding invitations. Instead, our brief was to create something fun and unique and capture their playful sense of humour.
A homage to the often parodied 1939 government poster emerged. Invitees receive either a printed poster, tea towel or mug. The play on words captures the couple's sense of humour as well as referencing the nerves often felt on the big day. The crown icon of the original poster was replaced by a wedding ring. Each limited edition item is hand numbered, providing a keepsake for friends and family.
We're dying over your dining room — what kinds of entertaining do you do?
"I love a huge dinner party — we do a lot of entertaining and dinner parties; BBQs in the backyard are my favorite. We have kids and we have a lot of friends with kids, so I have gotten used to lots of friends, lots of kids, great food, and delicious cocktails... nothing is better. They can stay all night, and even crash on our couch if it comes to it — restaurants never let you do that. Once a year (the day after New Year's Day), we do a brunch that usually lasts all day and ends in ordering Thai at midnight and a beer run to the bodega — this has become tradition and I am sticking with it."
