Invitation: Les Arts Florissants
One of my first solo projects, back in the late 90's: I was fresh out of college at my first job (Addison, designing annual reports) when my director handed me a sticker (shown on the cream band) and said, "Design an invitation package around this. Our client has a ton of these, and they need to keep costs down. Can you do it?" Of course! The American Friends of Les Arts Florissants is a group that raises funds for a French opera troupe, and they were holding a fundraiser. The copywriting gave a nod to the French aspect of the relationship, and all cards were housed in a felt-paper holder. Everyone was pleased with the result, and I found a true love for letterpress and typography, and the impact it can bring, all at a low cost.
