The Indigo Bunting is the nom de plume for designer Erin Jang, a former art director for Martha Stewart Living, Esquire, and other august names. When left to her own devices, her work bridges the gap between midcentury-inspired graphic design and playful subject matter. Her charmingly witty invitations and cards are a great way to have a little fun while keeping your entertaining as modern as your home.
The Indigo Bunting’s bold geometric prints, vibrant pop-art illustrations of food and drink, and striking typographic designs make her invitations a smart start to all of your parties. Bring her warm and lively sense of hospitality to book club, dinner and cocktails, or a restorative morning-after brunch. With online RSVP tracking and guest follow-up tools, it’s easy to take attendance and stock the bar accordingly.
If your guests are under the legal drinking age, you’ll find invitations perfect for entertaining even the littlest partiers. Jang’s designs for kids are winningly bright and cheerful, but they’re also a great way to show your high-design bonafides to the other parents. With invitations for kids’ and babies’ birthday parties, Indigo Bunting’s designs let you set the kids’ table with age-appropriate favors. New to the parenting game? Use her photo-ready birthday announcements to better frame any baby pictures you haven’t put on Instagram yet.
Jang’s cards and invitations are especiallly great during the holidays—her wit and haute design sensibility are a useful antidote to any suspicions you might have about overly-sentimental holiday greetings. They’re an even better addition to a family photo holiday card—and make an excellent frame for your family portraits.
For those who can’t join in on the fun, let them know you’re still thinking of them with cards for every sentiment and season. Send a thoughtful and quick birthday wish to a friend, a Mother’s or Father’s Day card to your parentals, or a cheeky love note to your main squeeze. You can schedule them in advance, too, so you’re never caught without a good word.
