As a print designer at heart working as the team lead at a web design firm, I grab every chance I can to design print materials. Every year Aptera hosts an open house shindig and our gracious owners pull out all the stops - food and drinks that make you drool just thinking about them and even a red carpet! Last year we had just moved downtown, so in keeping with the moving theme, I designed a grunge-style invite printed on chipboard. Cool and very inexpensive.
This year my challenge was to design an even "cooler" invitation that was right around the same cost. While I did go slightly over budget, I can say with confidence that this year's design made the cut for "cooler". My goal was to create an elegant, red carpet-style invite that was visually gorgeous and tactile.
