There are a lot of things that make Seattle unique, but my favorite is how well it balances nature, industry, art, music... the list goes on and on. There is endless inspiration to be found in everything from the beautiful waterfront neighborhoods, to the quirky art pieces, to the modern downtown skyline.
I spent most of my childhood in the Pacific Northwest, so my love affair with Seattle began at an early age — and after spending my college years there (Go Huskies!), I can say with confidence that it is high on the list of my favorite cities. Yes, it rains a lot there — but the city's vibrant personality more than makes up for that.
When I set out to create my semi-custom invitation collection, I knew that I had to include a suite inspired by my love for Seattle. Grey was a no-brainer, and I love how much this simple design stands out thanks to its background color. To capture the city's artistic, of-the-moment personality, I created a design that mixes an architectural layout with softer, artistic calligraphy accents.
What better way to celebrate the modern, artistic feel of Seattle than with a contemporary and minimalist design? THE SEATTLE SUITE features a structural sans-serif font, modern calligraphy accents, and a warm grey background as an homage to the city's infamous weather. Pairs perfectly with white envelopes and an industrial-chic venue.
