Each invitation was distributed to both an English and Arabic speaking audience. Working closely with the Saudi National team and the senior copywriter, the correct words were chosen to be translated correctly and reflect the exciting event.
An excel spreadsheet list of graduates were imported using InDesign for both English and Arabic in regard to the program for the event. It was created to match the design of the invitation. A new design element using a customized calligraphic representation of the KAUST motto “Through Inspiration, Discovery” was used as a logo for the event and utilized as a thematic pattern throughout the program.
The project was produced in Adobe Illustrator© and InDesign© with the Adobe World Tools©, Middle East Typography Plugin.
Working directly with the printer, the files were optimized for pre-press by myself to have correct pagination for saddle stitch binding, specify where the silver foil would lay and colors matched to correct Pantone© values.
