Our A to Z of Invitation Inspiration 2010

October 27th, 2010

In celebration of the countdown to both the launch of our 2011 Invitation Collection and updated Bespoke Portfolio… Zed & Bee present ‘Our A to Z of Invitation Inspiration 2010′.

In the following weeks we will present an A to Z of our daily inspiration under the main themes that inspire us in the creation of our designs. Inspiration for us comes from the most unlikely of places and, more often and not, anywhere but the wedding industry. We like to think diverse sources of inspiration aids in keeping our work fresh, gives us an edge as well as endless joy (pressure) to push ourselves past the realm of typical invitation designers.

While we could keep our inspiration close to our chests, we feel it best to give credit where credit is due by showcasing the talented souls out there creating truly magic work. We will also highlight the often overlooked areas of life that inspire endless creativity.
