T-Cross Invitation with Layered Circular Diecuts – 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's spotlight shines on a small but mighty invitation that was designed for a very special event. Michele Welsh of MomentuMedia in Baltimore designed this clever T-Cross invitation for Sisters Circle — an organization that supports long term mentorships for at-risk girls. It's celebrating 15 years and throwing a big event to celebrate.
By using a T-Cross format and a simple circular diecut that builds from panel to panel, Michele was able to create a focal point and sense of depth on this engaging invitation. It's a great example of smart design, creative format choice and short-run digital print. A must-see!
