A Tree Through the Seasons

The images below show, in order, the front, inside, and back of a wedding invitation. The clients, who are dear friends and avid gardeners, requested that the invitation depict an apple tree in various stages of the year. I designed the invitation with an unorthodox construction that provided the recipient with a novel and unrepeatable opening experience. Upon arrival, the invitation was sealed and bore no words. A string had been embedded discreetly in the front page with a tab instructing the recipient to pull it. As the string was pulled, it tore the paper, creating a door that revealed the inner portion of the invitation and transformed winter into summer. (In this version names and personal information have been purged) The client was very happy, and the invitations created a quite a stir among their friends.
