The Wedding Belle designed by Ghost

Oklahoma City based design studio Ghost have recently completed the visual identity for the The Wedding Belle, the ‘elegant and timeless’ wedding planning business of Robyn Martin. Designed to represent the modern bride, communicate style, confidence and expertise, Ghost created a solution that would match the caliber of Robyn’s craft by taking the elements of the existing mark, honour the original typeface and introduce a pastel colour palette and a gold foil detailing to achieve a “softness, warmth and a touch of formality.”

The flat pastel colour palette, bold white borders and the fine gold foil detailing of a well drawn two weight, broadly spaced uppercase sans-serif logotype is an incredibly simple and logo-centric combination but one that feels communicatively precise, effectively resolving contemporary craft, subtle fashion sensibilities and a professional, consistent high quality without forcing a specific wedding style. While bright and distinctive, the flat panels of colour, rather than event photography, appear as an open canvas for a breadth of individualised solutions, an element built upon on-line with a portfolio labelled by the first name of each bride. The only embellishment is the mark but this, like the stationery, is reduced down well to its most communicative form, rendered with a definite duality between bell and bride that is playful without undermining the other details.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
