The Challenge


Black and white is a staple ’colour’ combo for a reason: it’s sleek, sophisticated and versatile. For this design challenge, create 1x save the date card, 1x main wedding invitation, and 1x RSVP card. Cards can be white on black or black on white, and may incorporate foil, white ink or letterpress print elements. Think about making a statement with script and brush fonts with sans serifs, and lots of negative space.
