Event of the Century

How about some fun for your wedding? Time for the “Event of the Century” posters and cds. Michael and Jessica came up with that great idea to give to their wedding guests. I suppose Liz Taylor would have had to settle for “The Event of About Every 7 Years or So” — that doesn’t have the same ring to it. The first go around I mistakenly thought that their wanting to make the cd look like an old record album meant I was making it look like one, but who would have known there were blank cds out there that have the black vinyl grooves already created.

In the end, their event of the century was a success, which is what all of us really want.

Here is their movie poster…

…and cd cover…

…and the cd label that looks like a vinyl record that wasn’t needed…

…and the final cd label.

Luminarias Box

Though it might seem appropriate today to put up wedding invitations we have designed [yes, even the mbtween blog is not a safe haven from the hubbub around the royal wedding] we will jump back a few years to the box design for some luminarias. These labels were put on the ends of the box as the front of the box would not be shown while stacked, and the lights were not only beautiful but practical as well. The coated metal luminarias on thick outdoor wire cords meant that you could leave these lights out year round. It made me happy as I was getting tired of setting up the bags. Even the plastic bags were a pain and couldn’t handle the Tucson sun.

The lights look fantastic around the pool at night, but this is a little advertising trickery. It makes for a wonderful photo, but please don’t try this at home. Get real pool lights installed, and not lights [and cords] you could potentially kick into the pool.

Look around Tucson — you’ll see these in plenty of yards, and they are quite beautiful.
