Renate & Chris Wedding Stationery

Print, Wedding

Renate & Chris wanted printed invitations for important guests (like family and the elderly), together with easy-to-send digital versions of the invite. Two different digital versions were made: one for sending via WhatsApp, and one for sending via email.

The idea with the email version was to have an animated invitation. So for people who lived too far to get a real invitation, an electronic version of the envelope opening and invite unfolding was made. This animated invitation was then compiled into a GIF format to be embedded (or attached) to an email and to have as small a size as possible.
