This image is the invitation design for the 1999 Dance Theater
Workshop "Building Dance" Benefit. The blocks were created and lit in a 3D
program where it was easy to rotate and add image maps to each side. The image was
rendered at a high resolution and brought into Photoshop, where I created numerous channel
Since this invitation was intended to be printed in 2 colors, I converted the photoshop image to multi-channel mode. Then I copied the original black channel and assigned both channels their respective spot colors. Next, I used all of the alpha channels that I had created previously to delete and fill selective sections with color. It was important that the two color plate channels do not overlap their values too much.
I had originally done the text in this manner as well, but later re-did the text using Illustrator and overlapped the Illustrator EPS text with the Photoshop DCS image within QuarkXPress. Typography was done by Christine Steurmer.
Incidentally, the dance performance was excellent!
