About the Design

comments from Mandy:

Clean lines and a lot of white space to mimic a museum feeling. The vector artwork portrays the motion of hand blown glass.

I totally overlooked that I left out the "r" in Andrew... guess that's what I get for finishing this at midnight. I will revise, but thanks for the compliments.

Beautiful design

Wow, this is beautiful. While it does mimic the Chihuly glass sculpture that is serving as the inspiration / centerpiece for the bride's wedding ... I can see this being a lovely choice for many other people's save the dates too. It is a work of art itself.

wonderful fluidity in your illustration.

amy on Dec 10, 2008 at 2:39pm

Mandy, this is one of my favorites of the bunch. It captures the essence of the blown glass, but isn't too literal. And the lines contain a lot of energy and movement which I love. The only request I'd have would be to slightly simplify the typography. The lines take so much of the focus, I think we could go with a cleaner and simple approach with the information (freeing up a bit more white space). But that's a small change, and the overall approach is really wonderful. Thank you for your submission, we think its beautiful!

yah while the line work is stunning I think that the blocky text arrangement takes away from the fluidity. It seems really minimal type would have been enough- my opinion. Stunning though...

I have made typographic edits as suggested in order to simplify. Thank you all for your comments, suggestions and compliments!
