Miss Party’s better half, Mr Party, is back from his memorable “54th GRAMMY AWARDS” weekend in L.A. and thought you all might like a quick peek at the goodies he brought home from the events. The printed materials are quite gorgeous in and of themselves!
The various event invitations, tickets and program look delicious enough to eat! (Any of you graphic designers out there ever want to take a bite out of a really beautiful paper invitation? Miss Party just loves the feel of high-quality printed materials!)
The GRAMMY AWARDS invitation and presentation folder is done on beautiful, thick card stock and the tickets are laminated for durability (guests are required to have their ticket on their person at all times during the event). The official program is full color, glossy and full of music celebrity photos and ads from high-end businesses congratulating the GRAMMY nominees.
Mr Party attended the hottest party of every GRAMMY weekend, Clive Davis’ pre-party, held at the beautiful Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. The party invitation is a deep chocolate brown booklet of four pages, with gold embossed wording. Mr Party said the shocking news of Whitney Houston’s death at the same location just hours before the party, had many guests arriving with heavy hearts. Of course the host, Clive Davis, was quite distraught as well. He discovered and mentored Whitney Houston for over three decades. It was an odd twist of fate that so many people who knew and cared for her would be together to support each other and celebrate her gifts and positive spirit. Mr Party said Alicia Keys was absolutely amazing and the showstopper entertainer of the evening.
The striking official 54th GRAMMY AWARDS artwork, seen on the cover of the program, was created by world-renowned Architect, Frank Gehry. It combined some of Gehry’s iconic building silhouettes with The Recording Academy’s iconic gramophone to create a GRAMMY/Gehry cityscape. Some of Genry’s more famous buildings are the chic Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A. and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain and he is currently working on the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Museum. The GRAMMY AWARDS image represents an energetic, contemporary music scene set in modern culture.
The t-shirt is just plain cool…
