RevolvingDork Kellbot and RevolvingDork's Pixelated Wedding: Save the Date Cards

By RevolvingDork

We agreed that we didn't want the wedding or the reception to directly reference any specific game, but all materials preceding the big day were fair play for homage.

I thought that the first level of Donkey Kong would look nice with some extra definition, so I used it as the basis for our “Save the Date” cards. I re-drew the level at double the resolution of the original, adding simple shadows and highlights as I saw fit. Kellbot and I replaced Pauline at the top of the structure, pleading for guests to attend.

The theme of the card sneakily served as foreshadowing for our reception venue: We had just booked the Phoenixville Foundry, a converted ironworking foundry showcasing multiple levels of exposed beams. The building’s aesthetic reminded me of Donkey Kong’s iconic stacked girders, and the idea coalesced naturally.
