The Art Deco and Nouveau movements of the early 1920s brought us some of the most beautiful art, but not just art in the traditional sense. It impacted architecture, fashion and society – expressed wonderfully in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. The re-adaptation of the film The Great Gatsby is set to be one of the biggest wedding theme trends for 2014. Here we showcase just one Gatsby inspired wedding invitation, expressed through strong graphics, modern fonts of the period and the subtlety of classic vintage pastels. The invitation is embellished with feathers, pearls and diamantes.
The art nouveau period in the early 20th Century is the inspiration for this invitation which pays tribute to natural forms and structures. It is mostly influenced by Japanese wood-block prints and patterned surfaces which were typical of this ‘New Art’ which can be seen around the world. The invitation we created was printed and mounted onto a C6 silver edged white board, and then inserted into a newspaper printed with interesting facts and events of the period. Ribbon and beading completed the invitation.
