Allie’s Best Cards for July 2015

the summit blog post_July2015

We worked with Signed and Sealed by Steph in Denver, Colorado on this corporate invitation for Revenue Analytics’ annual convention called The Summit. The theme was The Art & Science of Revenue Generation, so we incorporated the science and technology concept in an artistic, but modern way.

The main invitation was a one inch thick acrylic with a sci-fi motherboard image printed on the back. The logo and event information etched on the front side for a three-dimensional effect. The custom designed mailer incorporated a pocket with an origami folded poster with detailed information about the schedule, speakers and agenda.

This invitation was sent to top business executives across the county, and made quite and impact upon arrival!

Allie’s Best Card for May 2015

zyman blog post_May2015

This invitation, designed with South Florida event planner Karla Conceptual Event Experiences, celebrated a milestone birthday for Sergio, a/k/a “the most interesting man in the world.”

A simple, typographic card, paired with a black lizard envelope served as a save the date announcement and created a preview for the invitation that followed.

For the main invitation, we stayed with the same colors and fonts, but layered different papers together to add thickness, texture and make it more “interesting.” The invitation was edge painted with metallic silver for an upscale look with a small stripe of shine.

This set was a beautiful way to bring friends together to celebrate someone special.

Allie’s Best Card for April 2015

Royal? Cerulean? Indigo? Cobalt? Regardless of what you want to call them, bright blues are HOT right now for bar and bat mitzvahs. It is also a popular color for girl and boy b’nai mitzvahs. We combined blue with neutrals white and grey for Matthew’s bar mitzvah invitation suite above.

The main invitation is printed on blue acrylic with an all-over coating of smoke grey ink, leaving the name clear to let the custom liner shine through as it emerges from the envelope. The custom liner is a pattern of logos, text and icons that represent Matthew’s favorite sports, cities and interests.

We  mixed different materials and printing methods throughout set, but kept it cohesive with color and typography. We had the privilege of working on this set with retailer  Precious Papers in West Harrison, New York.

Allie’s Best Card for March 2015

This week we are sharing a Bat Mitzvah invitation designed with typography and texture in mind. This oversized invitation included ceremony, party, reply and direction details, so there was a lot of text! The blend of sans-fonts in varying scale were divided into different sections to keep it organized and easy-to-read. We kept the layout modern to let the texture of the gloss white ink pressed into brushed aluminum paper shine through.

For added details, we backed the piece in pink silk paper and created a matching address labels for the white 5″ x 13″ envelope.

This modern Bat Mitzvah invitation suite was designed with retailer E.A.F Fine Papers in New York City.

Allie’s Best Card for November 2014

Hosting a Thanksgiving party instead of a Christmas party?

This invitation was designed for a special family and personal friend to the allie munroe team. We layered different paper textures and colors together to create a Fall medley of colors. A metallic copper card printed with rich brown ink was grommeted on top of a dark brown wood grain card.

This invite was a wonderful way to invite friends together to give thanks and celebrate the season.

Allie’s Best Card for October 2014

October’s ABC just screams MYSTERY! Beaux Arts Miami asked us to create an invitation for the 62nd Annual Beaux Arts Ball, the longest running costume ball in Miami, Florida. The ball, benefiting the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, was themed Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil.

They asked us to design an invitation that was a little bit edgy, but upscale enough for the event, which has a seated dinner, auction, dancing and requests black tie attire (for those not attending in costume).

The invitation was printed on flexible plastic on both sides to create a contrast in texture. Distressed typography matched the rustic look of the leaf and vine details at the top and bottom. The set is complete with an RSVP set and sponsorship inserts printed on a gold shimmer paper. Boo!
