Goth Bowl Invitation
An invitation to AIGA Austin's annual costume bowling party and membership drive.
AIGA Austin is a local chapter of a national design organization whose largest membership drive is its annual bowling party. Each year takes a different theme and all materials and design are donated in-kind. Attendees frequently arrive in costume and bowl for three hours while a dj spins music appropriate to the theme. Each invitation was hand-assembled by the event committee.

The invitation was designed with a corseted gatefold. Bowling pins were used to create the varnished filigree. Grommets secured the red liner to the exterior cover, allowing the diecut eyes and nose to really stand out.
The folded invitation fit neatly into square envelopes.
The Gothic theme was accentuated with this hand-finished corset closure, a low-tech interactive touch that enhanced the sense of anticipation and resulted in a sold-out event.
