FAME Open House Invitation


Step right up folks… and see what a creative agency from Minneapolis looks like!

FAME designed its own open house invitation with a “Big Top” theme, and it’s as quirky and fun as you’d expect a night with the Ringling Brothers to be.

The invitation consisted of five 5” x 9.5” cards letterpress printed on chipboard – reminded me a bit of a gypsy’s taro cards. Ink color palette was brown and blue (the blue was printed over opaque white to keep it purely lovely).

The chipboard and the letterpress printing gave it a decidedly tactile feel. Vintage inspired type and illustrations definitely brought a circus/fair vibe, as did the copy, which was so fun to read I actually checked to be sure the cards hadn’t stuck together … hoping there was one more text vignette. Alas, no such luck for me.

This talented team is the main attraction and sideshow all rolled into one.
