A haunting message debossed on phantom-colored paper wins this graphic design studio a spirit award. Triple thick paper adds ethereal weight and lurking shadows to the invitation, making me want to disappear into the new space. Forever.

As we transition to a new space, we decided to make an invitation that respects our standards and allows us to appear and disappear. The translucent envelope allows our type to disappear in the envelope, but when brought out it appears. We also wanted to get the thickest card possible to get great shadows in the deboss. The type takes on different forms when you move the card around and view it at different angles.
