Project Description

When presented with the task of designing our own wedding invite, we knew we were in for a gruelling process. Here we were, two designers marrying each other, subsequently making us our harshest and most critical clients yet:€” an interesting conundrum.

What resulted was a 21-by-28-inch, fold-out poster invite. It aimed at amusing our invitees, and served as a catapult for what would become a colourful and energetic wedding day.

The theme Heart Beats references our love of music, and hints at the music oriented ceremony and reception. The invite unfolds first revealing the date coded in dots, which maintains logical orientation even when completely unfolded. The back of the invite serves as a poster with lyrics overlaying a silver duotone of the venue. A light-sensitive UV adds another layer of depth to the poetic verse. The belly-band tears apart to become an RSVP postcard, and a date reminder for the fridge. The double-heart logo subtly contains our initials, MB, and signifies a pair of hearts falling in-line.

Production Lesson(s)

The size of the poster presented a couple challenges. The alignment on the spot UV was very difficult to register because of the paper stretching. However, our printer did an outstanding job getting the best results possible. Our most tedious challenge was folding. Because the size exceeded what our printer could do in-house, we took it upon ourselves to score and fold all the posters by hand. Although it was a lot of work, it ensured the best and cleanest result possible.”
