The assignment was to create a series of three oversized postcards that would be used as mailers for Pier One Imports. I was required to use photography, but I also wanted to create some other fun illustrative elements. I also wanted to create a catch phrase that would encompass what Pier One stood for. I decided on 'the world brought to your door.' Because you think of them as a place to get slightly exotic home furnishings, I wanted that to come across in both the language and imagery. The backgrounds are made up of many layers and images, but the base is scrapbooking paper I bought that had the feel of vintage travel, more so in the second card than the others. The back was actually the hardest to design because it had to be grayscale and abide by post office regulations.
