A Twitter proposal and the design that followed


It is an age-old tradition: boy asks girl to marry him,  girl says yes… For San Francisco couple Dale Larson and Laura La Gassa, the proposal followed this basic formula, with one big change – it all happened on Twitter! 

So when the time came to decide on wedding invitations, the couple commissioned Yiying Lu, the designer of Twitter’s infamous “Fail Whale” to create an original illustration.

The couple said, “On bended knee, with ring in one hand, iPhone in the other, Dale asked and Laura accepted via Twitter. Hundreds of San Francisco geeks witnessed and cheered at Harry McCracken and Marie Domingo’s “Tech the Halls” party.

We asked our friend Yiying Lu, designer of Twitter’s “Fail Whale”, to create our wedding invitation. Told her we wanted the opposite of a Fail Whale. She calls her illustration “Win Penguins”. We love it, and we thank Yiying and all our friends for their love and support.”
