Entertainment & The Arts
I'm a humorist and comedy writer. My debut comic novel PRESCHOOLED is being published Oct. 1. The target audience is adult readers, and the folks I'll be inviting to the publication party are sophisticated L.A.-dwellers.
What's your vision?
Hi! I'm preparing to launch my book, and the first task is to design a super-cool Save-the-Date card for the PRESCHOOLED Publication Party that will be held on October 1, 2015 in Beverly Hills. This card will ultimately be uploaded to Greenvelope.com where it will be included in an animated envelope that opens when the recipient opens the email (specifics below). Event Tone: The publication party will be a fun, spirited, and lighthearted event to be held poolside on the roof of the SIXTY Hotel in Beverly Hills. Excellent food, drinks, 360-degree city views, and music. The mood will be grown-up and sophisticated - not at all cute or kid-oriented (despite the book's title!) Design Tone: So many book launch invites are, well, pretty boring. I'd love a design that's contemporary, hip, and unexpected. Feel free to have fun with it! :) There will be Hollywood-types there (and aspiring ones, too), and you know they love that design-forward stuff. ;-) Plus, it's great to telegraph that, yes, it's a book launch, but it's also just a great party in its own right. PRESCHOOLED is a funny novel - an intertwining story about three people in LA who happen to have kids. It's not about parenting, fyi. :) The publication party will be on the posh side, so I'd love for it to be lighthearted - but not silly. Basically, I'd love for the recipients to open the Save-the-Date and think, "This looks like a hip, fun, and super-nice party on a balmy L.A. night - a great date night for me and my sidepiece!" (Or something to that effect...) If you want to get the vibe of the venue, check out their website - the rooftop pool can be seen on the splashdown page: http://www.sixtyhotels.com/hotel/beverly-hills/
Here are the design requirements so I can upload your work to the Greenvelope site: Supported File Types: .jpg, .jpeg, .png, and PDF Dimensions: Portrait Card: 1710px wide by 2430px tall Landscape Card: 2430px wide by 1710px tall Square Card: 2100px wide by 2100px tall The shape/layout of the card is at your design discretion. ________________________ The book: PRESCHOOLED A Novel by Anna Lefler The publication date is October 1st as well. The book is published by Full Fathom Five - it's probably a good idea to slip that in somewhere... ________________________ The event details: PRESCHOOLED Publication Party Thursday, October 1, 2015 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm SIXTY Beverly Hills 9360 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA 90212 _____________________________________ Since it's a Save-the-Date and not the official invitation (next project!), it may not be necessary to include all the address info, etc. Your call. :) ___________________________ I've attached the book cover and a photo of the book itself, but please don't feel obligated to use them - or the color scheme. Feel free to, of course, but no obligation. I'm happy to just get people pumped about the party and then they'll see the cover, etc. when they get there. ________________________________ If you want to get more background on me or the book, please visit my website: www.annalefler.com (Please note that the one currently up is an interim site and looks a tad serious. The new one will be up in a few weeks. But the content is current and there's a lot of info there that might be helpful.) ___________________________ Feel free to use phrases like "Anna Lefler's debut novel" and the like. ______________________________ I'm open to sophisticated illustration, offbeat photography, graphic typeface - whatever you think works best! Just please nothing that looks like a school or iconic kiddie stuff (lollipops, strollers, etc.) It's not a "mom event" in any way! :) _________________________________ I'd also like to make sure and have some text on there somewhere that says "Invitation to Follow" or the like. ______________________________ I realize that Save-the-Dates don't need to include a lot of information - I'm just giving you lots of background so you'll have a feel for the tone, etc. Mostly, I'm looking for a fabulous design that will grab people and can then be echoed in the invitation to follow. _________________________________ I can't think of anything else to add, but if you have questions, please reach out and I'll get right back to you! Thanks so much in advance - I'm excited to see your design! :-) ~ Anna
