Dan Judge Red Curtain Music Series Posters

I am absolutely loving Dan Judge’s Red Curtain Music Series posters — the illustrations, the colors, the typography, and the aged vintage look — sheer graphic design awesomeness. Each poster in the series is a two color screenprint, printed in a limited edition run of 50 each. I don’t yet see these beauties in Dan’s shop, but hopefully they’ll be there soon! In the meantime, you can check out more of Dan’s work in his Flickr photostream or at danjudge.com.

Aspen Letterpress Wedding Invitations

These gorgeous teal and chartreuse letterpress wedding invitations from Parrott Design Studio would be refreshing at any time of the year, but they’re particularly refreshing for me during what has been a very hot summer week.

Brooke and Marcus are getting married this summer in Aspen, Colorado, and Sarah Parrott took inspiration from the wedding location to create this oh so lovely wedding suite, which features aspen leaves, blind debossed mountains (love!), a ski lift, and a fantastic custom map of downtown Aspen. The bride completed the beautiful look by using vintage stamps that she collected as postage for the invitations.

Lone Star State Save the Dates

Texas Vintage Music Poster Inspired Save the Dates

Texas Vintage Music Poster Inspired Save the Dates


Thanks to Jennifer James, a designer and illustrator at Two Paperdolls, for letting me know about these fantastic, custom save the dates that she created for her sister and future brother-in-law. The design blends Texan-inspired shabby chic with the groom’s love of vintage music posters, and I love the palette of yellow linen, papaya, chocolate, and a dark sage-y green, perfect choices for a retro look with a slightly western feel.

My favorite part about the save the dates is that they tell the story of Kelly + Clayton, high school sweethearts who reunited after college. Knowing the bride and groom to be personally allowed Jennifer to design something unique for the couple and to share a story that certainly warmed the hearts of everyone who received a save the date.

Clever, removable hangtags continue the vintage theme and allow invitees to keep a reminder about the wedding in an easy to see place, and wraparound address labels are just plain cool.
