My now-husband and I commissioned Billy for our wedding invites. We knew we were getting married at a bar full of vintage arcade games, but that's as far as wed gotten with a theme. Which is weird, seeing as I'm an advertising creative director, and my husband is even more creative than me. You'd think we might have an idea. Anyway. We couldn't come up with anything super unique.
So we talked to Billy.
Right away, he said he'd always wanted to design a 3D arcade cabinet invite. Um, what? Honestly, I seriously doubted anyone could pull that off. I'd never seen anything like it before, outside of pop-up books. But his design eye is so incredible, and his work so unique, I had a gut feeling he would make it happen.
His communication was excellent. He emailed all through the process and was really open to our thoughts, and what we liked and didn't like. Once we agreed on the final design, he was determined to get them made in a cost-efficient way without requiring our guests to use scissors or glue. A tall order, indeed.
When I got the first prototype in the mail, I almost fell over. It was GORGEOUS. And even better, it worked. I had a lot of fun figuring out how to put it together, and I'm still amazed that it worked. So were our guests. The day they started arriving in the mail, we got so many texts from friends and family raving about how cool they were. Some of them still have our invites displayed!
Bottom line, I'd hire Billy to design anything, anytime. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
