Chicago Stories Gala Invite

The Chicago Stories Gala is an event hosted by Victory Gardens Biograph Theater. Victory Gardens is known for introducing new plays, and has produced more world premiers than any other theater in Chicago. In 2004, they purchased the Biograph Theater and within 2 years raised over $10 million to renovate the famed theater. The 23rd annual gala was a vital fundraising event for the theater group.

This hand-sized, trifold invitation is simple but elegant. The front cover has a circular cut out showing the event title and branding. All black with silver metallic ink is appropriate for the events location at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Chicago. In the background, you can see an image of an open book and the Chicago skyline outlined in a ghosted Gloss UV coating. It took tremendous vision to create the ghosted watermark because you can’t proof it before printing… They took a stab in the dark.
