Guest: How to Get the Perfect Invitations
Date of Broadcast: 12/3/2012
Length of Show: 45 minutes
Coming from a theatrical design background and a successful career in New York, I decided to indulge in my love for all things paper and my obsession for beautiful typography and become a graphic designer. The first time I accompanied a friend to select her wedding invitations I was amazed to find how difficult it was to find exactly what she was looking for. Nothing was just as she imagined and there seemed to be too many compromises. It didn’t take long to decide to design them ourselves. After helping her with all the details of her wedding, I was hooked.
I found the wedding invitations to be a wonderful contrast to the corporate graphic design and branding that comprised most of my business. I loved finding luxurious papers and using different printing techniques to make every invitation truly special. It was wonderful to be part of the process and to work with people on such a special event in their lives. Many of the brides and grooms we have worked with have become treasured friends.
Over the years, the business has grown. We moved from our tiny one room studio to our trendy Lincoln Park boutique, full of gifts and wonderful invitations from all the talented designers I have admired for years. As jobs go, it doesn’t get much better than this!
