Gettin’ Married (Later)

I usually try to do a few new side projects every year, but because life happens - this year might be not as outwardly productive as I'm used to. To that ends, I decided that my wedding would be one of my tent pole side projects for the year.

To that end, I spent some time designing out the wedding website. Settled on a design language for it and tried to use photos I've shot over the years as much as possible (I even went and did a photoshoot to get a shot of the venue). Anyway, it's mostly up now and you can see it at www.iguessimalreadythere.com.

The nice thing about having this design language in place is that it made designing the Save the Dates (and eventually Invitation) super easy.

Advertising.jpg

The other week I was talking to one of my copywriter friends, Jody Bufkin, who was getting into photography. It made me think about how so many people in advertising shoot, but there wasn't a great way to see what everyone was doing.

We had an idea, create an Instagram account that would seek out and highlight the best photography coming out of people in the industry. We're steadily growing the account and trying to feature at least one photo a day.

The image below was shot the other week, and I've already evolved the style a bit, but I like the image below because you can see how I originally envisioned the project.
