After spending several days at The Encore, Las Vegas last month, it was difficult not to come home with a head full of inspirations and ideas. I spent one afternoon slowly walking around the casino, sketching and snapping pictures. What is most striking is the manner in which the design evolves as you experience the space. Check in is alive with massive red flowers and natural light, while the casino space is darker and dramatic with its heavy light cast by red shaded chandeliers. Intense color everywhere was balanced by opulent golds.
Most inspired by the massive blooms at check-in, I envisioned an invitation just laden with rich red blossoms. The gate-fold design opens to reveal a layout featuring strong strokes of shimmering red inks and gold painted stems. A stunning gold paisley cardstock adds to the opulent feel overall.
