NZ Foodie’s Beach Club – Mimi & Warren

March 11th, 2011

This mood board was created with Mimi and Warren’s modern design aesthetic in mind. Elegantly casual and clever, inspiration was drawn from the couple’s love of food, their shared background and spectacular wedding venue at Waiheke Island, New Zealand.

With a refreshing palette of predominantly white with splashes of grey, green and gold accents, each concept presented is unpretentiously luxurious, and tactile. The inclusion of a wedding crest in gold foil gives the beachside setting ‘Bistro Sophistication’.

Preppy Country Club in the Hunter – Tegan & Tim

November 30th, 2010

With a stunning palette of Ivory, Lavender and Dusty Brown used cleanly against traditional serif fonts, concepts have been created using luxe printing processes to inject an understated ‘wow factor’.

July 12th, 2010

This mood board was created with Patricia and Filippo’s modern take on vintage in mind. Playfully casual and clever, inspiration was drawn from the couple’s own vivid palette of brilliant blue, orange and red, as well as their self confessed love for their home, Melbourne.

With visiting overseas guests in mind, one finds unexpected ways to showcase this wondrous city from an insider’s perspective, whether it be a keepsake poster print, destination guide or a map illustrating the couple’s love affair with their city.
