Portfolio Update: Winter Wedding Invitations

I was able to get a beta with Dunked back in April, and quickly fell in love with the website, where anyone can create a great looking portfolio – whether they know how to code or not. While it seems a little silly that a web designer would use a templating system for their own portfolio, the ease of use really won me over. That plus the existing clean templates and the ease of customization. After I had familiarized myself with Dunked, I decided to start using that as my primary portfolio instead of what I had been using previously.

Wedding InvitationsI made the first update today in a while with the most recent freelance project I’ve been working on – a winter wedding invitation package. The groom is actually my kid brother, which is kind of exiting in and of itself. He and his fiancee are getting married in mid-January, and they wanted a winter theme. I was told their colours, shown a few invitations they had liked previously, and given the text. The rest of it was complete freedom to do whatever I wanted with it. And so, I designed a package for the couple that included an invitation, RSVP card, table place cards and a monogram. The monogram will be used on the cupcakes as well as on the card box.

I’m pretty happy with how things turned out – it’s not often you’re given complete creative freedom over a project, so I definitely took advantage of that. It did end up being one of the more fun projects I’ve worked on, and I have to say that seeing something in print that I’ve designed is one of the most exciting things ever.

Hey, look at me being all self promoty!
