Custom pop-up cards made for TV
The assignment was to make a pop-up wedding invitation with an “Arabian” theme for a TV show. Storytelling was essential to the design: the show’s character is snooping around and picks up a glittering card. The tri-fold design served to increase the suspense and drama: first the character discovers the card is an invitation, then she finds out who is getting married — and she is relieved to see it is just the sister of her love interest! To make the card TV friendly the bride and groom are free standing and can be viewed from all angles, and the text is large. The art department provided a sketch of the Palace, and, working closely with the prop master, Make Anything Pop-Up transformed it into the third dimension and produced three gilded prototypes in record time.
The owners of Greene Acres Barn, a beautiful event venue in South Carolina, wanted to send a special thank you card and keepsake to all the lucky couples who wed in their barn… and they needed to customize each card with the names of bride and groom. The solution? A freestanding pop-up replica of their barn which they can quickly glue onto any individually printed card.
This 3D architectural plan was commissioned by an advertising agency for the presentation of a studio rental space to a potential client. The custom pop-up design was incorporated into an impressive hand-bound book.
A very special invitation
