Turnstyle selected the Seattle Space Needle, which is where the the party was to take place, as the date reminder for the AIGA Seattle event they were promoting. By letterpressing a dotted line around the large letters, and providing cut and assembly instructions within the invitations, a mini model could be left on one’s desk as a nifty reminder to show up and join the party.
