A Desert Noir Story
An online digital publication of The Noir's union in Joshua Tree, California
The Noir’s are unlike any other couple I’ve met. They are beautifully dedicated to one another, so much so that they ran away to elope in the embracing deserts of Joshua Tree where they solidified their love with the help of a good friend.
Prior to their elopement, I was commissioned to create a custom watercolor marriage certificate that they would take with them on their journey. Given free reigns, I created pieces that abstractly connected the place of their union with the name they would soon take together, “Noir”.
In addition to their certificate, I was also given the opportunity to tell their love story through a digital online publication, creating an experience that felt parallel to theirs in the desert. Working closely with the couple, we created their online publication called, “The Desert Noir Story,” which houses their elopement story and a gallery of their captured moments.
To help prepare for their union reveal, I designed and developed a digital online invitation to so that they may bring together their loved ones to collectively celebrate their love.
