The invitation for the wedding of Olympia and Yiorgos, which took place on the island of Kythnos in Greece, in June 2013. The Project won an award at the EBGE awards.
What the couple had in mind for the wedding was that the whole thing should be as informal as possible, primarily just a good excuse to be with friends & family in a beautiful place for a few days, have a good time and party.
In the same time we had to find a way to provide all the guests with all the practical information they’d need in order to travel to, and stay on Kythnos, since it was a new destination for most.
Thus it was decided that the invitation would be in the format of a poster which would serve the two purposes.
On the first side, we created a big illustration of the map of Kythnos, accompanied by the portraits of the couple and various elements that had to do with the wedding.
This side would also work as a children’s coloring book that guests could color themselves.
On the other side the guests would find all the information that someone visiting Kythnos for the first time would need.
After being printed and folded, the posters were inserted in metal boxes, together with a set of coloring pencils, an eraser and a pencil sharpener.
On each box the Color Me Badly logo was screenprinted and a sticker tag, similar to those on childrens’ notebooks was pasted. The name of each guest was written on those tags by hand.
