Introducing Morocco: vibrant mosaic wedding invitation inspiration

Designer Sierra Detrick is no stranger to worldly inspiration.Growing up, I based many of my projects in school and in personal pieces around multi-cultural arts,” she says. “The diverse creativity of the world still heavily influences me today.”

She found inspiration for her Morocco design in the vibrant hues and intricate details seen often in Moroccan design. “I was really taken with modernized versions of the Moroccan-style tiling I was seeing in home design,” says Sierra. “I decided to create my own tile pattern that could be used throughout a wedding invitation suite and paired it with a very simplistic but elegant body of text. I didn’t want the copy to compete too much with this vibrant pattern, but I still wanted it to be able to stand on it’s own. Ted Clausen’s ornate hand calligraphy added just the right amount of sophistication.”
