E-vites by Ikue E-vites by Ikue
A few months ago I was asked to design some wedding E-vites for a great friend and deviant, `Athos-of-Light. He recently married another awesome deviant (`Tiganusi) and since I couldn't be there in person I thought I'd help out and design their wedding invites that they planed to email out to those who could attend.

It was a Chinese theme, if you hadn't already guessed, and the ever amazing $Moonbeam13 had an awesome idea to make take home gift boxes out of Chinese food containers. She came to me after the invites were done and asked if I could help make the seals to keep the goodies inside their boxes as well. After a bit of tweaking this was the result. I've not seen any pictures of the actual containers (hint int wink wink) so I had to guesstimate that this is what was done with them.

P.S. Everything is made in photoshop, even the takeout box was made from scratch for this preview. :B

Sharp, clean crisp and to the point. Definitely how wedding invites/favors should look. I especially love how the invitation itself looks like a menu-way to keep in with the theme!

Wow this is such a great design. I love the colors and the Chinese theme really comes through. That take out box made me hungry....

I think with it's major tone is black and white (and plus red, but not the main color), the design is clean, minimal, and the chopsticks, I think it's more likely Japan-style rather than Chinese. :blahblah: :D

Thanks man :D The chopsticks weren't really part of the project. I just drew them and threw them in there to add some balance to the preview. :D

Oh, it's suite the idea of the design. The chopsticks, at least in my culture (and maybe in other cultures that use chopsticks), are (one of) symbol of couple, marriage, etc... So, IMO, it's great to have (neat, symmetrical) chopsticks. :dance:

No, no, I'm not an expert, but it's so common here as I know. :paranoid:

Sick work! I think you could've gone a bit farther with revealing the Chinese theme on the invitation though.

Ikue Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agreed, I think I could have worked in some more chinese elements here and there... The specified the cherry blossom and another flower and the colours though so I wanted to give them that without over powering it.
