Louise & Ed

Louise & Ed married at The Walsh Street House in Melbourne, an architectural gem designed in 1958 by Robin Boyd and his family’s home for many years. The bespoke, hand-painted invitations and thank you cards for their autumnal wedding referenced flowers and colours from the bridal party’s bouquets and were sent out in envelopes hand-addressed with pink and orange ink. Digging around at the print workshop, we found a beautiful old type called Granby Light – influenced by its two more famous antecedents, Gil Sans and Johnston, also known as the London Underground’s font – which referenced the Modernist venue perfectly.

The Magnolia Party

An illustration for my dear friend Sam, who has a tree overlooking her Edinburgh townhouse window that explodes in a cloud of creamy white flowers every April and which she celebrates each year with a suitably extravagant Magnolia Party. Scribble & Daub was charged with illustrating the invitations, sent out by the internet’s favourite postal service, Paperless Post. A perfect excuse for a party, and the perfect excuse for me to linger in awe over Ellsworth Kelly’s drawings of the aforementioned flowers before attempting some of my own…
