Inspiration behind Elum Designs’ Starlight invitation from their Umi 2 album

April 3, 2012

One look at the ‘Starlight‘ wedding invitation suite from Elum Designs’ new Umi 2 album and you’ll be ready to step back to the 50’s and party the night away. Letterpress printed on 100% cotton rag paper, this gorgeous retro chic design features dynamic patterns and modern type that emphasize the depth and texture of this groovy design. They chose a fun color palette of light ‘Water’ blue and rich ‘Pumpkin’ orange, however, with a switch to deep ‘Concord’ purple and pale ‘Fog’ gray, this invitation would be fabulous for a sophisticated evening affair. Take a look below at the inspiration behind this hip invitation suite, and come back again for more moodboards coming soon from their new Umi 2 album!
