This man is a genius – FACT.
Back in September we first introduced you to the talents of Marty McColgan, a graphic and web designer God, when we featured his festival style table plans which quite simply rocked! Well, now Marty has turned his attention to festival style invitations and save the dates and as always his designs have captured the vibe of a festival brilliantly!
Marty explains the ideas behind his designs………
Festival Concert Ticket Wedding Invitations
“This wedding invitation was designed for a couple of festival lovers called Brian and Kelly. Originally Brian and Kelly were supposed to get married in the summer but had to put their wedding back to winter so when they mentioned the idea of a festival ticket as their wedding invitation the first thing I thought was that summery festival imagery for a winter wedding wont really work, so with a little bit of magic ( and some snowflakes ) Winter Wedfest 2012 was born.”
“The wedding invites were designed to look like concert tickets, complete with a perforated tear off stub which doubles as the RSVP card so the guests can easily tear off the ticket stub and post it back to Kelly & Brian.”
“The front side of the festival tickets is designed up with the winter wedfest graphics and then the reverse is made to look like a printed ticket with all the information, times, dates, venues etc… These invites came out fantastically well and look amazing in your hand.”
Festival Themed Wedding Invitations
“Following on from the above design, these are a set of festival themed wedding invitations designed in the style of a festival concert poster. Drawing inspiration from some of the festival style table plans I have worked on this couple Rikki & Simon wanted their wedding day plans laid out in a festival line up format.”
“Using the term Wedfest 2013 as the name of the event the headline acts on the poster / invitation are the bride and groom and then the days events are broken down into the support slots. This is a really fun wedding stationery, the colours are really vibrant and really sets the wedding up to be a really fun day.”
For the evening invitations I kept the same design but with some slight changes. The evening invites have a strap line of THE AFTER PARTY which clearly makes a distinction between the day invites and the evening invites, plus as its aimed at the evening guests I have changed the colours to give more of a night time twilight feel to the invitation. Both of these invites printed really beautifully and were finished off with a gloss lamination to really make them look fantastic.”
Festival Themed Save The Dates
“These WEDFEST festival themed save the date wedding cards are a set I designed for a couple of festival lovers called Jessica & Paul. Jessica got in touch with me after seeing some of my previous festival themed wedding stationery and in particular the festival ticket wedding invitations I had created.”
“Looking for something similar Jessica gave me a run down of what kind of thing she wanted and I set to work… the first part of her festival themed stationery is the save the date cards. I designed these cards to look like flyers announcing the initial wedding details, much like you might see when a music festival announces its dates and main headline acts months before the rest of the line up is announced.”
“For these save the date cards I designed them in a really grungy style, which will be carried out through the rest of the stationery using the WEDFEST 2013 logo throughout”
Each of the above designs can be adapted to suit your requirements so if you like the idea of the concert tickets but would like a bespoke design then get in touch with Marty to discuss your ideas. As you can see the man is a whizz when it comes to festival wedding stationery!
Mr McColgan – we salute you!
