The evolution of information technology has turned the assumptions of where work happens inside out. The typical 9 to 5 grind spent in an office building is giving way to the virtual work environment, turning mobile devices into the new 24/7 home office. In the midst of this transition, a balance must be struck that is able to meet the emerging demands of a new, blended workspace. Naturally, that includes the accessibility of your corporate templates. To stay within branding guidelines, employees need to know where exactly they can find the most recent company templates. Ideally, they should be accessible everywhere, from every device, around the clock – no matter if staff are working from a hotel while pitching sales, sitting in the metro creating a new PowerPoint presentation on their iPad, or working from home. Restricted access will only encourage employees to work with outdated documents they have stored somewhere on their computer, or to just start designing their own – potentially using Comic Sans and yellow bullet points to make them look nice. And there goes the corporate identity.
An invitation is more than just its aesthetics. As you go through the design process, dont forget about the reason you are making the invitation in the first place: to notify others of an important event. To keep all details legible, be sure to use a considerable font size for location and dates. Be wary of font styles that are hard to read, such as loopy script styles or heavily condensed typefaces. Always contrast the text color with its background; print dark ink on a light background, or vice versa. When creating an invitation that consists of multiple parts, such as a wedding invitation, there needs to be a coherent theme amongst all portions. Stick to a consistent theme by using an established color palette, typeface, illustration, photography, and layout throughout all designs.
An invitation does not always require illustrations or hand-drawn elements; you can also attach personal images, or in this card instance, flat lay images. Photography is a great way to make invitations more personal and intimate. If you want to make your own invitation using Shutterstock Editor, you can easily search and incorporate images from my collection, or upload your own personal photos to the app. If you are printing your invitation on a flat sheet of paper, the design might appear lackluster without some additional finishes. Try adding some dimension to a flat design by incorporating debossing, embossing, or letterpress. Debossed portions are depressed into the surface, while embossed patterns are raised on paper. Letterpress printing leaves an imprint of text or images, either with or without ink. All of these subtle imprints can give your invitations that wow factor. The elements cost extra at a printer, but they might be worth it on an otherwise minimal design. Nowadays, many invitations are designed exclusively online with the help of design software, like our online photo editor. Stray from the norm and include a handwritten touch by personally addressing your cards with calligraphy or by incorporating splashes of watercolor. When you do this, simply leave room on the invitation for your handmade touches. For special and memorable occasions, like a wedding or important birthday celebration, try experimenting with metallic ink or foil accents. These accents add a hint of shine and brilliance to borders, illustrations, and typography. Before committing to using specialty inks in your invitation, be sure to consult with a professional printing shop.
