Show Notes

If you're going to tell your guests where to sit at your wedding reception, you have to let them know what table to go to and maybe what seat to sit in at the table.  I had the pleasure of talking to Jordan about ways  you can turn a tedious task into a genuine gesture. It's a chance to be creative, unique and elevate your guests experience.  We'll also remind you of the different kinds of cards: place cards, escort cards, seating charts, etc

A USER EXPERIENCE DESIGNER BY TRADE, JORDAN’S BACKGROUND IN ART AND DESIGN ISN’T JUST PROFESSIONAL—it’s been a deep-seated passion for as long as he can remember. After years in the advertising industry working in web design and user experience with major brands like Pepsi, Visa, Toyota, and Mercedes, Jordan knew it was time he took his creativity offline so he could get his hands dirty. Out of that realization, he launched a custom brooch business which, ultimately, evolved into wedding stationery, perfectly marrying his experience in digital design with his love for crafting.

Thus, his boutique design firm, A Good Day, was born to serve planners and their couples eclectic, one-of-a-kind stationery that establishes a unique brand for each event. From save-the-dates and invitations to day-of signage and menus, Jordan draws inspiration from his diverse array of interests spanning fashion, architecture, interior design, and film to curate an aesthetic that perfectly matches each clients’ vision for their celebration.
