Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?


Wedding is considered to be the most important day of one’s life….a day when you want everything to be simply perfect and memorable. It is believed, there are two major points which turnovers a new leaf in everyone’s life…first when you get married and second when you start with a professional career. As for me, the most important day was becoming a professional graphic designer but many people would prefer marriage as their life-changing day.

You guys must be wondering what makes me talk about wedding stuff on a Graphic Design Blog. With Prince Williams and Kate Middleton tying the knot in an extravagant ceremony on April 29, a massive roar of anticipation has unleashed all around. Therefore, being a graphic designer it is an occupational hazard to relate everything with graphic designing ;)

So while thinking about how weddings are planned, I thought how similar the process is to a graphic design project. You might wonder what an absurd comparision it is, but wait till you read these amusing but true similarities between both the ventures. I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading them:


1. ‘Budget’ Constraints:

Wedding planning is an expensive venture, but they always have to be limited within an affordable budget. Although one may want the best of everything on their wedding day, they are restricted by their finances. Well…so does a graphic design project. Although clients want the best design, they are also constrained by a budget for their graphic design projects.


2. Race against ‘Time’:

“The final date is looming over your head…everything has to be finalized within time for the BIG DAY.” Sounds common for both a wedding planning and a graphic design project doesn’t it? Both graphic design project and wedding planning are constrained by timing limitations. In both cases, there is a lot to do, but very little time. Deadlines for design projects are similar to wedding dates because this is the day you have to ‘show up prepared’.


3. Need to be ‘Perfect’:

“I don’t know but I want it to be just perrrffect”this is one statement that you will hear in both weddings and design projects. Just like a couple wants their wedding arrangements to be ideal, clients also want their design to be perfect. Irrespective of the fact that perfection or satisfaction is extremely hard to achieve together, the demands are always for the best in the least possible price.


4. Making ‘Vows’:

Wedding is a relationship built on trust and promises. But so is a client-designer relationship isn’t it? Just like there are wedding vows that you need to make to your partner at the time of wedding, there are also certain promises that you make to your graphic design client before the start of a project. Your wedding vows ensure your partner that you will fulfill all his/her needs and desires in the years to come. While on the other hand, your client vows guarantees your client that you will design according to his wish and requirements.


5. The ‘Rehearsal’ Phase:

Both wedding and graphic design project include a ‘rehearsal’ phase. Similar to rehearsal dinners before the wedding day, there are project trials and mock-ups before final submission. In both cases you need to make sure that your work is accurate and does not contain any loopholes.


6. Too many Decisions to make:

Let’s go about this one scenario at a time starting with the wedding planning. There are a host of things that need to be decided in wedding arrangements like selecting the wedding location, the wedding rings, dresses, flowers and dinner menu. There are too many choices that you need to make while planning for a wedding. Now coming over to graphic design projects, choices like what will be the color scheme used in the design, what fonts to adopt and what symbols to use are present.


7. Involves a lot of ‘Stress’:

All graphic designers would agree that every design project is a strenuous endeavor. On the contrary, some graphic designers are workaholics when it comes to their work. For them there is no such thing as an easy project. All projects are challenging in their own ways. Similarly, all wedding planning are also stressful and sometimes traumatic. The last minute changes are common among both graphic design project and wedding preparations.


Packing up all this excitement, has launched a logo design contest to brand the Royal Wedding. This really proves that graphic design plays an important role in making a wedding memorable. Afterall, your event is incomplete without creative monograms and invitation cards.

So guys…does this strange comparision makes sense to you NOW ;)

    A very interesting article. I’d never have thought of comparing design work to weddings – but then again I’ve not gone through the stresses of a wedding yet. But you’re right in terms of timescales, budget and stress. Too many decisions is a good point too…. usually leading to clients want to mash different design ideas together.

    ha, I’m starting to love these analogies! When is the “Ruining a Graphic Design agency is like captaining an 1830′s fishing trawler” post? ;)

    It is really a great thinking and great imagination. Of course both Graphic design and a wedding suits each other perfectly as you have explained above.

    I thought this was a strange article until I saw the 7 points.

    Beware anyone looking to spend their life at a graphic design studio.Could be worse though, we could work in a bank!
