My sister is throwing a bridal shower for a friend. She asked if I would make some invitations for the event and she’d print them on different colored paper.
Thoughts about Quarter Page
I liked this version of the invitation better because the smaller format meant the imagery and text could mingle more. The layout was put to better use, aligning the text to follow the contours of the hula girl for example.
Thoughts about Half Page
Since I couldn’t be sure what color paper the invitations would be printed on I opted to keep the imagery and type in all black.Keeping it simple in that regard makes me think of a garage band photocopying fliers for a performance.
I wanted to accentuate the print/Xerox look a bit so I used half-tone dots on the hula girl.
