Caribbean Adventure Letterpress Invitations

Photography by Michele Hart

Kristy Hinze, the host and head judge of Project Runway Australia, reached out wanting gorgeous, masculine and fun invitations for her husband Jim Clark, founder of Netscape, big 70th birthday bash in the Caribbean.
We went with a two color letterpress design on luxe Crane’s Lettra Paper and paired with Crane’s envelopes. I designed and illustrated a custom map of the area in the Dominican Republic that they stayed at.  It included key landmarks the guest’s would want to see and Jim’s favorite activities and spots. We used this as our envelope liner. To show the full weekends agenda I designed an accordion folded, double sided program that listed each days activities paired with an fun illustration. It was pocket sized so that guest’s could bring it with them. A letterpressed band neatly held the program and invitation together when you opened up the envelope.
I wish I could have been a guest at the party, but this project was an absolute blast to collaborate on!
