- Get Hitched
- Get Hitched was a unique project to design for, as the clientele was my fiancé and myself. I have always found it difficult to design for myself because of the ever-broadening scope of ideas and the many varied ways in which the project can be executed. The drive and creativity which is so useful to a designer to overcome the often restrictive nature of client-driven projects almost becomes detrimental, as it becomes nigh impossible to reel in the imagination to manageable, realistic levels. The only way I could deal with this was to treat myself as I would any other client, setting myself deadlines and sticking to self-imposed rules.
I knew that I wanted our wedding invitations to be something that our friends and family would remember and hold on to, long after the wedding. I also wanted the invitation to deliver the essence of what we are as a couple. We are both highly adventurous people - we love traveling, discovering new foods, going to markets, meeting new people and exploring the world with all of our senses. I hence decided to create an invitation that would give our guests a small taste of us and to share with them the treasures of new and exciting flavours. It would deliver beyond visual representation by including interactive packaging to appeal to touch and a mixed array of spices in the packets to delight through scent and taste. To put them together, we handcrafted small brown boxes, in which we placed seven individually designed and crafted packets of spices, along with the wedding invitation details and information. For the wedding, I designed the stationery to reflect the theme articulated by the invites. The intention was to show off a beautiful eclecticness which represented the uniqueness of each spice and the uniqueness of the experiences we have had together in the world that we love to enjoy.
