This might have been one of my favorite projects ever. I was recently given the opportunity to design and print a “vintage boarding pass” contest announcement for the 700 students of the 2011 graduating class of RISD. Etsy is hosting its first international conference, Hello Etsy, in Berlin Germany this September. They are offering one spot to the winning graduate, and wanted an original, fun way to announce the contest.
This job included die-cutting and assembling the sleeves, so it was no small task. Here are a few more shots of the job in progress, including one of the very large pile of scrap paper left over from the die-cut sleeves. I’m looking for ideas on how to make good use of it. :)
