Themed Invitation with Flipper Animation: 60-Second Fold of the Week (Video)
You're going to love this week's super-creative format! This circus-themed event invitation is a self-promotional piece produced by SunDance Marketing Solutions in Orlando, Florida. The piece was sent to a list of lucky guests of the SunDance annual holiday party. Designed in a "Cirque du SunDance" theme, there is a fun surprise on the inside of the invitation. A pull tab activates a flip animation of little acrobats swinging by. When the animation ends, the event details are revealed. We think this week's selection offers a fun and fabulous way to generate buzz for an event.
Special Note: We only had one sample, so Trish was unable to take the piece apart this week, however if you'd like to see how the integrated flipper works, you'll want to visit episode #154 in the Fold of the Week archive where Trish takes apart a pocket folder with an integrated flipper mechanism.
