Complete with die-cut and embossed flowers, uniquely folded envelope, and metallic sticker to seal the deal, it’s hard to believe that Basilica’s Brilliantly Blooming ball invitation is a scaled back version of KNOCK’s original vision.

Project Description

Since the fundraiser takes place in early May, we wanted the invitation to feel very "springy" and literately "blooming". This was achieved with delicate die-cut flowers who open up to reveal a brilliant metallic shade of orchid color beneath.

Production Lesson(s)

Something I learned fairly early on: dream big, but then start scaling back when it actually comes down to production. For example, instead of sourcing a metallic colored card, we had to print the color on white stock due to cost.”
