Project Description

Wedding season is pivotal at Paperless Post, and the 2017 wedding season was no exception. To address the challenge of engaging users with a classic aesthetic through a contemporary lens, the 2017 wedding campaign married paper and digital products in a single canvas, showing the range of delivery options Paperless Post offers for the entire wedding sending process. In our photo art direction, a set of crisply arranged objects creating geometrical shadows emphasized the precise and tactile nature of paper invitations, communicating the high quality of the fine paper stock itself.

As a physical counterpart to the visual online marketing of the campaign, printed collateral was designed to be received by representatives of the press as a means of demonstrating our approach to design for the 2017 wedding season, as well as an opportunity to feel the same quality paper stock which is used for our printed cards and invitations. The decision to pursue an 8-panel, gatefold construction was a deliberate one that ensured our ability to walk the reader through our approach to design and technology, so that they might experience one controlled stage at a time, reinforcing a careful approach to practicality through intelligent design.

Production Lesson(s)

As a brand that deals mostly with digital creative, it is always a welcomed challenge to shift our design thinking from the seemingly boundless canvas of the screen, to the physical form and structure of printed matter. We took care to proof the document frequently in order to constantly observe the opportunity that scale and pagination might offer us to better-express our design sentiments through a hand-held experience. Typography and photography were used in tandem to convey a visual experience that complements the on-screen marketing efforts we were also producing at the same time.

Because we periodically produce printed collateral for affiliate partnerships through our steady relationship with our printing partner, Mercury Printing, we do have a certain luxury of predicting the quality of the job with minimal deviation each time. However, this was the first time we have designed a gatefold construction, and the design challenges this format introduced to us, did enlighten us about potential new ways of imagining our visual brand in the future. We're constantly looking for ways to mature the Paperless Post brand experience, and we consider this project a great symbol of growth.

As our brand designer, Colleen Griffiths took care to remind herself during this project, "Measure, measure, measure!"”
