We’ve all seen & admired the beautifully crafted wedding invite by designer and groom, Matt Dorfman. Although Jill & Matt got married two years ago, the interwebs are still abuzz over their little typographic treasure.
Well it seems someone over in Boden’s creative department has done their trending homework and has taken note as well.
Their most recent winter catalog bears a striking resemblance to Jill & Matt’s wedding invite. The catalog features a contest in the form of a fictional love story between you, the consumer, and “Johnnie” (Boden).

I would have loved to see the plates as a square or rectangular design where food segments were housed in their own little units to help aid in portion control. Some fun nutrition facts presented with some eye-catching typography would be a great addition too.
