Genius wedding invitation by Matt Dorfman

Matt Dorfman's wedding invitation

Ok, I know I post a lot of feminine art and design on this blog. I am truly drawn to it and it’s what I do as an illustrator. However, some of my biggest influences are men. Matt Dorfman is one of them, both man and influence.  Here’s his vote poster for the AIGA, and his collaborative project Mammal Magazine (welcome to manville).

Is it any wonder his recent wedding invitation is genius? I’ve never seen such a clever invite. No flowers, no lace, no swirly calligraphy, just their whole entire love story (what a story it is). The design blows my mind and the concept is just perfect.

It’s been almost 2 years since Dave and I got married (follow that link if you are into sap) and I still haven’t put together a wedding book. I’m planning to make a blurb book. Matt’s wedding invitation makes me feel lazy and lame.

Congratulations Matt and Jill.

    Hey Jill!!
    I think he already knows. I told him a while back. Actually I went to Syracuse with him. He was older and wiser and I looked up to his work in illustration. So it’s nice to see what he’s up to today. He’s so incredibly talented. I love this invitation so much. Apparently a lot of other bloggers too as they found it here and could not resist sharing it. It’s super cool. Congrats on getting married btw.
