Punk is not dead

We’ve submitted our design for the Fedrigoni UK calendar, in which 365 designers were selected to submit ideas for a 2020 calendar that will be printed showing different ideas and skillsets.

Each participant was asked to contribute a piece of work interpreting a date provided to them at random. Confines were established to challenge each designer’s creativity by restricting the book to one colour print, which forced their pieces to focus strictly on concept, shape and form. Through these parameters the Calendar has shaped into a beautiful visual story whose pace varies from page to page, and spread to spread.

We can’t reveal what date we got yet, but here’s a clue: punk is not dead, or is it?

Take a deep breath and break some rules, because it’s only amongst a little chaos that we find the best beginnings of new creation and opportunity.”
