Ted & Alex’s Save the Date

In early 2020, my fiancé Alex and I decided to cancel our original wedding plans for July due to the pandemic. While it was a tough call, we didn’t want to force our guests to make a difficult and potentially dangerous choice. Although we’re sad we can’t go with our original plans, we know we are fortunate to be healthy, and we’re looking forward to a brighter (and different) future!

We created a save the date website for our guests that tells the story of our relationship, offers helpful information, and allows visitors to sign up for updates. I designed and coded the website, and Alex contributed by writing our story and helping with ideas, concepts, and editing.

I also created custom invitations using the colors we established for our wedding. It was so fun breaking out my Wacom tablet after a long hiatus from illustrating!

Working on such a personal and intimate creative project has shown me that design can absolutely be meaningful. The positive notes we’ve received from friends and family exemplify that meaning.
