This was done as a three week project for Stefan Sagmeister's class while at SVA as an MFA student. I am getting married in August 2015 and needed a way to ask my oldest friend to be my Matron of Honor at the wedding. What materialized was a storybook set of pop up cards that traveled through our pasts together, from running around the Louvre, to ridiculously fantastic games, to sleep overs, and ending on a future memory - her being there with me when I get married.
I created this set of cards, then mailed them to Georgia. She didn't know anything was coming and her sisters filmed her reaction (video to come later).
Illustration collaboration with the most wonderful Gretchen Braun (Behance site here
). She created the beautiful characters, mailed me the vector files, and I proceeded to bring them to life through cut paper and pop ups.
Just for your peace of mind, she loved it. :)
