While I was designing my latest wedding invitation template the other day I decided to record my screen to show you my process.
Then I sent the illustrations to my iMac using Air Drop and opened up Adobe Illustrator. At the start of the video you can see me using Image Trace to convert my drawings to vectors. I like to retain the grungy, hand-drawn look of the drawings.
After vectorising the images, I grabbed an image from Pinterest to create my own colour palette. I then recoloured my images using that colour palette.
I then proceeded to create a frame or wreath using the foliage. This was the longest step as it’s quite a challenge! You’ll see me testing out different placements and rotating the images to make it look just right.
When my wreath was completed I added the text and then chose an appropriate fonts (Glacial Indifference and Riverside Avenue) and matched the text colour to the colours of the foliage.
Since this wedding invitation template is for my Creative Market shop I chose free fonts that my customers can download without having to pay anything extra. It’s always a challenge to find free, high quality fonts so I usually stick to the same ones.
I hope you enjoyed watching my first design process video. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions or would like to see more of these types of videos.
