Wonderful concept for an interactive wedding invitation by design studio Le Caja de Tipos- creating perforated circles for the guests to pop out and create their own unique designs (with suggested patterns in an infographic vector style on the back of the card)- and to recycle the paper punched out as confetti for the wedding! Original and environmental- two of my favourite things!
Great use of the greyscale colour palette used too- ensures the designs are kept simple and sophisticated.
Designs above, by Ben Slater, for the event 'Tescodisco' (featuring "a nocturnal art gallery, live performance, and truly unique electronic soundscapes) cleverly blends the distinctive visual branding of capitalist super-giant brand 'Tesco', with a contemporary and edgy screen-print zine-like design. Combining the distinctive stripe design with retro-esque typography (and even a few letters from the Russian alphabet thrown in for good Eastern-European influence and measure) creates an edgy, distinctive look.
A wonderfully fun and innovative printed media concept by designer Chris Trivizas- combining both the childhood joy of "speaking" through tin cans attached by string (I did this...a lot) to spread the engagement word, through form of invitation (along with a printed invitation inside) and then an infographic print design on how the cans can be recycled by attaching to the wedding car post-ceremony in the traditional (if slightly confusing?) manner.Again, a great example of multi- purpose design... really inspiring stuff.
