OBJECTIVE

A paper promotion event to educate and delight. The event is a turn of the century, world–fair inspired party to celebrate our knowledge of the natural world, mysticism and magic.

CONCEPT

Curiosity of the natural world and medicine, self reflection, enlightenment, mystery. The primary palette is set to black with magenta highlights to enable the lighter elements to visually depict the word “enlightenment” and old fashioned elements are presented in a modern layout and typographic format.

INSPIRATION

Martin Venezky, 826 Valencia, Dave Eggers’ writing center & pirate store, antique books uncovered at flea markets, and Victorian era ephemera from medical plates, posters, tobacco tins, stamps, passports and old money.
