Recently, I was contacted by Collier Enterprises to create an invitation for a boat show to be held at Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club. They wanted to use a simple concept of a rope and compass rose for the front of the invite. After some brainstorming with local printer, Intech Printing, we decided to use a multi-level emboss on the rope to give it some added texture. We also used a dull varnish on the invite except for the compass rose, which used a gloss varnish to make it stand out (hopefully that is apparent in the photo). As a designer, it’s really nice to get to work with a quality printer on a project that includes a few bells & whistles.
