Festival Wedding Invites – 2013 is well underway and here is the first set of festival themed wedding invites I have produced this year. These festival wedding invites are in a festival ticket style like some of the ones I produced last year and this is the first of many I am working on at the moment. These concert ticket style wedding invitations are for a couple who I previously designed festival themed save the date cards for late last year and this WEDFEST 2013 theme is now carried through to their wedding invitations. The couple loved the idea of the festival ticket wedding invitations idea and after I had worked on the save the date cards the artwork lent itself perfectly to these ticket designs.
The invitations are split into two, one set for day guests and a further set of invitations for evening only guests, or after party guests as the tickets say. These invitations turned out amazing and look even better in real life. The ticket stub doubles as the RSVP card so the guests can tear it off easily as the edge is perforated and then simply send back the RSVP via the details provided.
For the wedding day invitation I used the images of grass, sky and trees that you might see on a regular festival poster and then for the evening invitations or after party invites I used imagery of a festival crowd and bright pinks and yellows which gives the feel of a party atmosphere.
Like I said these festival wedding invites are the first that I have worked on this year and as festival theme weddings have become more and more popular I will be doing many, many more of these this year… Keep an eye on my blog in the coming days and weeks to see some of the new designs I have created for festival weddings in 2013!

Cinema Poster Wedding Seating Plan - Happy New Year Everyone! where did 2012 go? It will be missed!! However onwards with 2013 we must go! But before we kick straight into the new year here is a wedding table plan I designed for a couple who got married over Christmas. The seating plan is based on a Cinema poster as they wanted a Movie themed wedding. This one turned out pretty cool, it has the cinema in the background with the couples names on the cinema screen and then has a lost of actors who are starring in the ‘made up’ movie, these actors and actresses are the table names for the wedding. Underneath each of the actor and actresses names is the list of guests that will be sitting at that table. I am looking forward to working on lots of new wedding table plan designs this year who knows what is around the corner!!
Festival Wedding Table Plan – This festival wedding table plan is the final part of wedding stationery I have designed for a couple of festival lovers from London called Kelly & Brian. You will have seen previous posts on this blog of some of the other wedding stationery that I designed for these guys including festival ticket style wedding invitations and also festival style wedding lanyard. This wedding has been a delight to work on and all the stationery produced has been really fun to design and really interesting and I myself have got a massive response from other people interested in festival themed wedding stationery. So to wrap up this part of the wedding stationery the Festival Wedding Table Plan below follows the previously designed stationery and is in the winter wedfest festival theme, with all of the wedding tables named after Kelly and Brian’s favourite festival names… below you can also see the table cards that I designed and printed for the wedding tables which have the same winter wedfest theme and the name and logo’s of each of the festivals the tables are named after… all in all this wedding is set to rock if the stationery is anything to go by!! cant wait to see the pictures! good luck to Kelly & Brian.
Below is another set of Polaroid Wedding Thank You Cards I created for a couple of newly weds called Toni & Justin. These polaroid photo style wedding thank you cards are designed to look like a vintage or retro polaroid photo at the front and then on the back they are a postcard so you can write your message and address etc for sending… for more examples of wedding thank you cards please click here or get in touch if you have something in mind you would like designed for your wedding thank you cards or wedding stationery in general.
This is a wedding menu I designed a few months ago and totally forgot about until someone inquired about something similar. The wedding was in Scotland and I had previously created a Scottish themed wedding table plan for the couple and then they wanted their wedding dinner menus to have a quirky design also, so they came up with the idea of a Scottish walking trail. after some research I discovered the west highland way trail which covers a large part of the country side including popular spots such as Loch Lomond, Ben Nevis, Fort William and other parts of the Scottish Highlands from Milngavie just north of Glasgow to Fort William. So anyway I used this route as the layout for the days events including dinner, drinks, dancing, and other parts of the wedding… It turned out pretty cool as you can see below…

This current set of wedding stationery that I have been working on for Kelly & Brian has been a dream. The 2 soon to be newly weds have went all out for their festival themed wedding. As I mentioned on previous posts the guys were originally meant to get married in the summer which would have been WEDFEST, but they had to put the wedding back to winter and so Winter Wedfest is the theme. On previous posts I showed examples of the festival ticket wedding invitations I designed for them and I also am working on a festival themed wedding table plan and table cards as well as some other bits and pieces but this is my favourite part of the whole thing…
They asked me to create wedding festival lanyards that the guests would be given on the day of the wedding with all the information of the wedding on it just like you would get at a real festival. Included on the festival wedding programme lanyards are the running times of the day, dinner times, band and music times, menus for dinner and evening food, a venue map to show people where everything is and other fun stuff.
These wedding festival lanyards turned out amazing and will look fantastic on the day of the wedding especially when everyone is wearing them and dancing around at night, it will really add to the festival theme of the wedding. Check out the photos below which I took on a rare sunny moment these days as its about -1 degrees outside at the moment, i laid them down in the grass and they wouldn’t look out of place at any festival! if you would like to enquire about something similar for your wedding please click here to get in touch…
Looking for something similar Jessica gave me a run down of what kind of thing she wanted and I set to work… the first part of her festival themed wedding stationery is the festival save the date cards. I designed these cards to look like flyers announcing the initial wedding details, much like you might see when a music festival announce its dates and main headliner months before the rest of the line up is announced. For these save the date cards I designed them in a really grungey style, which will be carried out through the rest of the stationery using the WEDFEST 2013 logo throughout… I have already designed the invites which are done like festival tickets and they look even better than the save the date cards but for now this is all I can show you… stay tuned for more awesome festival themed wedding stationery…
Below is a 3 fold flyer design and a Poster I designed and printed for the charity Youth2Youth which is a youth based helpline charity that is run by childrens charity Kidscape. The helpline is for any young person under the age of 19 years who feel they need emotional support. For more on both these charities visit Kidscape and Youth2Youth
Following on from the festival ticket wedding invitations I recently designed this is a set of festival themed wedding invitations designed in the style of a festival concert poster. Drawing inspiration from some of the festival style table plans I have worked on this couple Rikki & Simon wanted their wedding day plans laid out in a festival line up format. Using the term Wedfest 2013 as the name of the event the headline acts on the poster / invitation are the bride and groom and then the days events are broken down into the support slots. This is a really fun wedding stationery, the colours are really vibrant and really sets the wedding up to be a really fun day.
For the evening invitations I kept the same design but with some slight changes. The evening invites have a strap line of THE AFTER PARTY which clearly makes a distinction between the day invites and the evening invites, plus as its aimed at the evening guests I have changed the colours to give more of a night time twilight feel to the invitation. Both of these invites printed really beautifully and were finished off with a gloss lamination to really make them look fantastic.
Rikki & Simon were so delighted with the design of the wedding invites that they wanted it printed up as an A1 poster which they could hang in their house. You can see the poster in the background of the pictires below and it will certainly brighten up whatever room they choose to hang it in.

The Brady Academy of Music runs monthly Irish & traditional music sessions around the county of Derry and beyond. I have designed previous posters for these traditional sessions and they asked me to create them a Halloween based poster for their forthcoming gig. I wanted to focus mainly on the halloween side of things and then try and fit some kind of irish music theme into it, and it was easy really, once I finished the main poster I had ideas of making the gravestones in the shape of instruments but the answer was much simpler. The shape of the moon is the shape and colour of a bodhrán ( an Irish frame drum ), so I put a celtic design around the moon to have this represent the bodhrán in the background.

I was extremely pleased last week when the management of American Hip Hop/Rap Band Cypress Hill got in touch with me and told me they had seen some of my previous design work and would like me to design the poster for Cypress Hill’s forthcoming US tour and a variation on the poster to advertise the bands headline gig at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square New York City on Halloween Night. Supporting Cypress Hill on the tour is New York rapper Action Bronson who also features on the poster design. A great project to work on! *Insane*
Every year for Dan’s Bar & Restaurant, Co Derry in Northern Ireland I design and print them a Christmas themed restaurant menu and bar entertainment guide.

Lately I have been designing a lot of wedding table plans and wedding seating plans (both the same thing but people refer to them as one or the other). A popular theme for these wedding table plans is festival wedding table plans - to have them designed in a music festival style poster. I have done a few festival style wedding seating plans so far but this one is by far my favourite.
This couple got engaged a few months ago after featuring on Keith Lemon’s new TV progamme called Lemon-Aid. You can watch the video of the guys on Keith’s show by clicking here….
Claire contacted me asking for a a music festival themed wedding table plan based on a few of her favourite music festivals. The result can be seen below and really looks great, take note that special guest on the day will be Keith Lemon himself, what a great guest this would be to have at your wedding.

Keep Calm and Carry on Wedding Invites - These wedding invites for Sophie and Matthew are based on the old Keep Calm and Carry On posters which were produced by the british government during the second world war. This Keep Calm and Carry On poster design has a resurgence in the past few years and has been re-issued over a range of products such as war memorabilia, posters, tea towels, mugs, t-shirts and pretty much anything else you can think of, which brings us to wedding invitations.
Sophie and Matthew wanted to use the Keep Calm and Carry On theme in their wedding invitations and wedding stationary design but still have an antique and vintage feel about it. The wedding invite I designed shows the Keep Calm and Carry On theme on a red wooden background with cracked white paint showing the text which has been changed to Keep Calm its just a Wedding Invite, and on the reverse the wedding invite details are on some old torn and worn paper. These invites where printed A5 size to give a sense of a small sized Keep Calm and Carry On poster which could be kept and possibly later framed by the person that receives it.

This is a cinema / movie themed wedding table plan poster that I designed for the wedding of Elaine & Ashley who got married this weekend just gone by. The tables were named after some of hollywood movies greatest stars and the design of the poster reflected a cinema poster with some images of the actors and actresses and the bride and groom as the centre of attention.
This is a 3 fold Beauty Salon brochure design and business card design I created for a Beauty Salon in County Derry that was having a recent relaunch after moving into new premises. The Beauty Salon Brochure design was based on the colours of the logo design using the pink and black throughout on a white background. Good Luck Michaela!

When I was working on my wedding invitations last year I wanted to work a music festival theme into the invitations as we are festival fans, this was one of the festival style wedding invitations I ended up with. Unfortunately it didnt make the final cut but we had a festival themed wedding table plan instead. Below is the festival themed wedding invitation in the style of a festival poster wedding invitation.
February has arrived already and February is famous for Valentines Day and this year is also leap year. I noticed a social networking company in Derry ‘Joe Derry’ running a poster design competition on the theme ‘Love’ so this is a Love Poster I designed based on that theme. It features the quote “Love: the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired” which has been attributed to both Mark Twain and Robert Frost, so I will let literature fans decide over that one.
This is a book cover design I recently worked on. Its for Belfast based writer Steve Wellings forthcoming book ‘Irish Boxing Review 2012′, due out very soon. I will post the link to the book here as soon as its released. The book cover features Belfast Boxer Carl Frampton. I’m looking forward to seeing it in the shops.
