Top Gun Party

Client: Seaman Corporation

Every year, Seaman Corporation hosts an after party at the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFA) trade show. In 2009, the party was held aboard the deck of the U.S.S. Midway, a retired aircraft carrier located in San Diego.

The theme of Top Gun was chosen for the party, and invitations were centered around a top secret mission. Pre-show email blasts were designed and sent to all invitees. Invitations were mailed out in discreet manilla envelopes labeled “TOP SECRET,” and “CLASSIFIED.” Inside the invitation, recipients would find an itinerary, custom trading cards, tattoos, and a custom manufactured foam airplane, which was capable of flight when assembled.
