Wrecks / The Wrecks man of the house was turning 50. As it was marking a significant milestone in his life, no expense was spared when creating the invitations to a spectacular ball they were hosting in celebration. This was a designers dream! Designing a logo, then picking paper and choosing print methods to evoke the amazing black and gold theme that they had chosen for a masked ball. Given that this was a much more fluid and creative brief than most, the logo needed to be a ‘mark’ with the number 50 incorporated. Initial ideas were based on a coat of arms and then having simplified it further to end up as pure typography. With a black woven textured paper from GF Smith and a gold foil, the invitations were as good as Charlie’s golden ticket to the Chocolate Factory.
