San Francisco independent graphic designer Arin Fishkin created a beautiful new ticket design for Burning Man 2010. She describes the process that went into the design:
Creating this ticket is more or less equivalent to printing money, since each one has a value of between $200 and $300. Security features include embossing and two separate foil stamps, including one holographic. The ticket is also meant to be a tiny piece of art that builds enthusiasm and communicates the theme of the event (this year its Metropolis). Designing this piece was more demanding per square inch than anything I’ve ever worked on and I’d welcome the chance to talk to you more about it in detail.
Tickets for Burning Man 2010 went on sale last week. This year’s event takes place August 30th through September 6th and the art theme is Metropolis.
