2018 Fran Folsom Culinary Dinner Invitation Suite

  • Save

Create a full invitation suite promoting the PPCC's largest fundraising gala, the Fran Folsom Culinary Arts Scholarship Dinner.

I was inspired by Tuscany and vintage food labels from the 1930s to create this design. The dinner is an elegant event, prepared and served by PPCC scholarship recipients. From the vintage food labels, I brought in the engraving style for the illustrations and photographs. Tuscan buildings and landscape inspired the color palette. All the script is hand calligraphed and contrasts nicely with a slab serif typeface. I created the framing and patterns, inspired by the food labels. The entire suite included: save the date, invitation, envelope and reply card, event program, menu and table numbers.

Printing Notes
Program, invite and table numbers were printed on Neenah Classic Crest in Brilliant White. The program had a die-cut on the front cover and the script was enhanced with a copper foil imprint. The menu was on Neenah Vellum.
