What is it about woodgrain? It’s organic, it’s tactile, it’s beautiful, it’s masculine, it’s feminine and it’s downright alluring. (And let’s face it, it’s just about everywhere you turn these days). Our new letterpress wedding invitation suite is one of our favorites from the new Umi 2 album.
We approached this otherwise rustic concept from a modern minimalist perspective, using subtle and organic woodgrain patterns that harmonize with clean crisp typography, creating an emphasis on openness that is undeniably seductive. We chose a cool neutral color palette of pale gray ‘Shadow’ and deep rich ‘Fudge’, but this fabulous design could be punched-up for Spring or Summer with the switch of an ink. We can picture it now with type in a fresh citrus green or a bold bright hot pink .
