Papermade Design — Los Angeles, USA

"I think that culture and tradition can have a big impact on invitation design. The wording on an invitation is carefully thought out and reviewed by the clients and their families, and the wording also dictates the level of formality of an event. I love it when clients find ways to show their love for their family and friends – it is one of the main reasons that I love designing invitations!"

Elaine Chou is the brain behind Papermade Design, whose studio name was derived from the words “hand-made” because she was inspired by the charm of hand-made products. She loves the personal and unique quality of something that is created by hand and often incorporates hand-drawn illustrations and hand-lettering or calligraphy in her work.
