Lead Image

The goal of these invitations and event materials is to avoid looking too hand-crafty but also hold back from seeming too ostentatious. Mike Smith struck a balance between classy and exciting to make people feel special and interested in attending the event with the right typeface (Grumpy by Tomi Haaparanta and Tom Carnase for Suomi) and a contemporary take on art deco decorative flourishes. He even found a way to do classy wristbands.

Project Description

We wanted to create an elegant invitation suite that had a really personalized touch to it. We printed each name and hand stamped every envelope to really get people excited about receiving this package in the mail.

Production Lesson(s)

Hand stamping 1,000 envelopes is never a good idea.”
