Retro Country Wandin Valley – Kristy & Hamish

This mood board was created with Kristy and Hamish’s Wandin Valley countryside wedding setting in mind. Combining Retro typefaces, traditionally printed in the couple’s festive palette on recycled stocks, the result is ‘Country Fair’ in the Australian Bush with a little ‘Rock and Roll’ thrown in for good measure.

A shared passion for music influenced one printing method suggested, a screen printed solution in keeping with gig posters.

Whether it be stacked Retro Typographic Card Components, an Illustrated Poster or a Letterpressed Wedding Invitation Set with Screen Printed Overlay, the solution is classic Retro with a slightly playful, unexpected sway. Each invitation concept is as bright in personality as the couple and as casually elegant as their day intends to be.
