Balancing a sense of artistry and design aesthetic with a love of all things geeky and videogames is a somewhat tricky task (and one which has and will continue to arise for every wedding-related design.) These save-the-dates are the most recent of said designs.
Ideally, those who are not gamers would react along the lines of “That’s a pretty design!” while gamers would say “zomg TETRIS!”
It takes a bit of finesse and finagling to achieve a happy balance. Staying true to the original tetris colors? Fine in the videogame, gaudy in a save-the-date. Constructing text from the tetris blocks? Great in theory, too involved and detailed to work in practice. Hence the final product: new fonts, a simple color palette restricted to our wedding colors, lots of white space for breathing room, but still the general Tetris shapes and forms we recognize and love.
