It’s Ticket Time
Creating tickets for your event doesn’t have to be bland and boring. While some people opt for the standard template design, adding a personalized touch can make a big difference and make your event seem that much more exciting to attend.
Some of the tickets I’ve created over the last few months include a St. Patty’s Day themed Buck and Doe ticket, as well as a ticket design for a charitable event; The Little Black Dress Party here in Stratford, Ontario.
The St. Patty’s Day Buck and Doe ticket was fun to create because:
1) I got to use shamrock and green beer graphics, which I don’t get to do every day!
2) I had a lot of fun using bold punches of colour in various shades of green, and
3) The design was for my beloved brother and sister-in-law which makes it extra special
I created a vertical design to better suit the amount of information we had to include, and to make it a little different. I used all vector graphics for clean lines and easy readability, and naturally made the green beer the focal point of the design considering the type of event it is!
The Little Black Dress Party is an annual event in which I happily volunteer my services for free since this is a charitable event. It’s organized and sponsored by Pin Up Hair Studios and all proceeds go to the Canadian Mental Health Association. It’s an all female event where ladies are encouraged to wear their favourite little black dress, enjoy a few cocktails and dance the night away! There are also several guest speakers every year who talk about topics ranging from mental health to overcoming difficult life obstacles. It’s always a popular event with tickets running out before they can even be promoted!
For the design I wanted to keep it classic with a touch of elegance. I used a horizontal black and white stripe background with a vintage badge placed on top. I kept the Typography decorative yet readable with minimal graphics to help readers concentrate on the important information.
Both of these designs are very different from one another but effectively represent the type of event they’re designed for. If you’re looking to have your event ticket personalized, you know who to come to!
