Elixir designed invitations for the Academy of Sciences’ opening gala and dinners. The dinner invitation presents a cosmic perspective, starting with a chart of spirals created by prime numbers that holds a series of ultra-recyclable enclosures posing the Academy’s Big Questions. The gala invitation zeroes in on the festivities with a succession of photos: the earth from 250,000 mi. away; an aerial view of San Francisco from 200 mi. up;the Academy from 1,000 ft. overhead; a sneak-peek at the tropical fish from 2 ft.; and the champagne to be served, from a mere 10 mm. The Academy opened to the public this past Saturday, September 27!
