MyMy studio in the real world is rather like the studio here in the virtual world - a bit on the busy side with lots of things going on. I may be researching a map in this corner, painting a sign-in board in that. My drawing table may be covered with sketches for a monogram which must be moved to make way for a stack of envelopes which need to be addressed.
The chaotic overlapping has good results, however. What I bring to one job may be inspired by another, seemingly unrelated piece.
.....In the examples of celebratory calligraphy and design that follow, you’ll see how the different components of a formal invitation – the envelope, the invitation, and the map-and-directions card – all contribute to the tone and the theme of your gathering. And you’ll also see how other components (such as maps, monograms, and sign-in boards) can make an equally deep impression upon your guests. Take a look at some of the examples on the links below. You’ll never think of calligraphy and invitation design the same way again!.
