With my sister’s wedding around the corner, I was prompted to find the coolest invitation design. It’s not every day you find a design you can play with. I’m not talking paper boats or spin wheels (no hate), but a paper record player wedding invitation you can spin on your AT turntable – What the what?! Now, that is something to get excited about. I know there are design-loving audiophiles nerding out with me.
Marrying science and design, Kelli Anderson went above and beyond to capture her friends' passion for music – Mike a music engineer and Karen a lawyer and DJ. By tinkering with paper folds, the invitation became a musical vessel that allowed a sewing needle to slide along the grooves of a flexidisc record.
To cap it off, the song on the disc is an original recording by the couple. The recipient is taken on a journey through their friends’ musical love story by way of brilliant packaging.
Award for the coolest wedding invitation goes to Kelli Anderson. I fell for this design at first sight.
