This is my own project, invitation cards for the the church ceremony in the afternoon and the Chinese banquet in the evening.
From Part 1, we have nailed down the concept and the design of the logo. In this part, we are moving to the next stage - application of the logo to invitation card.
Background- I need to work on 2 invitation cards, the church ceremony and the evening Chinese banquet, with my knowledge of printing and limited budget, we proudly present these cards to all of our guests.
Here are some sketches and research at the early stage.
Shirley and I love the traditional Chinese culture, in this case, we would like to add a little taste of modern.
Rather than printing foil gold of the red card, which is the very old style of the wedding invitation card in Chinese, metallic silver is chosen to print on the card. Silver on red are still very high contrast and at the same time, improved the legibility, as our guests are from teens to elderly.
Using translucent paper to warp the card instead of envelop, not just to create the layering, but also to reduce the reflection of "Double Happniess" printing with UV-coating. Therefore, there would be a little surprise when the guest to slide the card out from the translucent warping and reveal the glossy "Double Happniess".
