Red + Aqua

I am gearing up to print my Christmas cards and decided (finally!) to print them in red and aqua.  I just love this color combination, and its versatile applications.  It can be bold and playful, like my Christmas cards, just as easily as it can be romantic and whimsical.  It got me thinking about the invitation, menu and calligraphy elements I designed for an Amelie inspired photo shoot planned by Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree, and photographed by Meg Perotti.  Have you seen Amelie?  If not, you really should!  I watched it a fourth time just to get inspired for this design.  And here is what I came up with:

bottom photo: nonpareil magazine, which is no longer up and at 'em.  so very sad!

The phrase "voulez-vous me rencontrer," meaning "do you want to meet me?" was printed at the top; Amelie writes this note to Nino in the movie after she finds his photo album.  And, of course… he does want to meet her.

Au revoir!
