{design: true type love by Jessica Hische}

Yup, more wedding inspiration. But I guarantee you 10000% that you’ve never seen anything like this. This is the most unique and beautiful wedding invitation for the uber talented type illustrator and designer Jessica Hische & her designer beau Russ. If you’re familiar with Jessica’s work, you can see that this is cut from the same cloth of all her incredible type work & illustration. 

These are just a few stills from the invite. You have to actually click on the link to see and have the full experience. That’s right, it’s an experience. It’s a stunning, animated linear timeline of their relationship right from the beginning with beautifully crafted visuals helping the story along.

I can’t believe this is coming from a print designer but maybe this is the future of the wedding invite?

Holy cow do I ever love these painting by Michael Cina that I saw on Design Sponge this morning. I know, I know, some of you are like “it’s just a bunch of paint blobs” and I guess in a literal sense you’re right. But there’s something about these paint blobs that get a reaction from me, so that makes them more. Not surprisingly I think what I love most is the colour selection. I also love how organic they blend and bleed into each other. I can appreciate the ones where the paint is manipulated more by the artist because it takes a great eye & skill to create balance or tension or anything else you want the viewer to feel but I really love when you put a bunch of great materials together and let them do their thang & see what happens. Here are a few of my favourites….
