Jeff and Delaine

Here’s the invitation I designed for my good friends Jeff and Delaine. Jeff is from Spartanburg and Delaine is from Charleston. The bride wanted something that represented Charleston and Spartanburg to be present in the invite. I wrote down several things that identify the two locations and I landed on a concept that hints at the history of the places. Charleston was once filled with numerous cotton plantations and Spartanburg was once a large textile town filled with countless mills around the area. The cotton boll represents Delaine and her natural beauty. Jeff is represented by the line pattern in the background which is a simplified form of the lines of thread stretched across the looms in the mills.
