Digital Invitation Suite
Digital technology generates, stores, and processes data in terms of two states: 0 and 1. Thus, data transmitted or stored with digital technology can be expressed as a string of 0’s and 1’s. Each of these digits is referred to as a bit. Real-world information is converted to bits using binary code. For example, a string of eight binary digits (bits) can represent any of 256 possible values and can therefore correspond to a variety of different symbols, letters, or instructions.
All design elements in this suite are related to digital technology. The circuit diagrams were taken from actual printed circuit boards. The pattern of dots on the Save the Date is the wedding date in binary code. The optional band that holds the invite, response card, and response card envelope together is the names of the bride and groom in binary ASCII code, simulating punched tape used for early computer programming. Even the beautiful metal decorations in the photos are heat sinks for old central processing units.
