Gavin Martin are a high end specialist printer based in Central London. Their clients are some of the best design agencies in the UK.

To celebrate Christmas, Gavin Martin Associates decided to hold a Curryoke party – an evening of curry and karaoke – and asked us to design an invitation that would live up to their first class reputation..

We subverted popular Karaoke songs and the iconic Indian take away container to create a memorable invite.

The invitations where delivered in a brown paper bag containing a number of curry stained containers, each with a different song message scrawled on the top. Songs include: ‘Murder on Dhansk floor’, ‘Love me tandoor’, ‘Rice rice baby’ and ‘Naaneater’, amongst many others.

Hidden away on the flip-side of the lid, is the event details foil blocked onto mirror board.
