Flourished Calligraphy for a Save The Date

This was quite a fun, yet challenging project … designing the “perfect” version of the words Save The Date, in a flourished calligraphic script. The photograph was taken by Elizabeth Messina, and the invitation was designed by my friend Susan at Papel Paper & Press.
