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 October 2013

OCt. 2013 beaux-arts-ball

Happy Halloween! This month’s ABC just screams FUN! Beaux Arts Miami asked us to create an invitation for the 61st Annual Beaux Arts Ball, the longest running costume ball in Miami, Florida. The 2013 ball was themed Wig + Stache Bash, which opened up a world of costume possibilities.

They asked us to design an invitation that was a little bit edgy, but upscale enough to match the event, which has a seated dinner, auction, dancing and requests black tie attire (for those not attending in costume). The graffiti-inspired set is complete with a custom stamp, RSVP set and sponsorship insert.  We layered the invite with 3 papers to give it extra thickness and create a contrasting navy blue back.  All insert cards tucked neatly into a sleek back pocket.  We worked with a local graffiti artist to create the logo – note the tiny white mustache on the A!
