Wang & Wong Wedding Invitation

February 20, 2013 | 3 Comments

Designed by Michèle Wong Kung Fong | Country: United States

“This letterpressed wedding invitation visually blends the couple’s eastern descent and upbringing with their westernized lifestyle. The design was informed by the proportions of the chinese character 王, which stands for both of their last names (Wang and Wong). While Wang (王) is the pinyin romanization of the Chinese surnames 王, Wong (王) is the Cantonese romanization of that same chinese character. The visual quality and structural proportions of the couple’s chinese last name informed the design of this wedding invitation. A customized typeface was initially created based on the chinese character and later applied to create a typographic pattern (used on the coaster) that captured the sought after eastern-western essence. This pattern inspire a series of pattern that could be applied to other parts of the invitation design system. The pattern on the rsvp card hinted at checkboxes while the ‘words of wisdom’ coaster played off of the graphic representation of ‘hugs and kisses’ (xo) and the invitation and direction cards used and/or deconstructed the chinese character itself. The invitation, direction, rsvp, and thank you cards were letterpresses using metallic grey ink on 110# uncoated Lettra paper and the coasters were letterpressed on #220 uncoated Lettra paper.”
