The Dinner Party
- Designer Sania Khan
The brief was to create a typographic invitation for 5 guests of choice. I was tasked to choose a theme that suits them and display their personalities through expressive typography as well as the format of the invitation. My guests were Imran Khan, Zaha Hadid, Wes Anderson, Hayao Miyazaki and Princess Diana. Each person is known to be admirable, a bit controversial and eccentric in their own way, therefore, the theme of my Dinner Party is ‘Opening Up’ because If I had to host a dinner party with them, I imagined myself wanting to know them for who they really are.
Design-wise, I chose to communicate the concept of ‘Opening Up’ through my invitation’s format, which physically opens up to display their names. I chose the coloured stock ‘Electric Blood’ because it represents their bright eccentric personalities. Each person is given a double-page spread with their names typographically expressed.
