Sometimes, I am nostalgic of 2006 when I created this blog and I post things on only one place... With my 3 facebooks, 3 Instagram, 2 twitters and all the other way to post it makes me going crazy! Anyway, here is the latest update on the calendar! Printing should start next week and I am happy to say the deluxe edition with fully printed in hot foil thanks to a partnership with Foilco and Senses papers! 
I also open on a tempory pre-order shop with Backerkit where you can get the printing plate! It seems as a good idea as only 5 of the 12 plates is still available! I also propose printing proofs of the design you prefer. This will be closed when the calendar is ready so it is only for pre-orders !

Always a pleasure to see the calendar going on step by step. I visit Monaco last week to met Senses papers and Foil co who will be sponsors of the projects. I hope to reach the 200% target to have the deluxe edition fully in hot foil printing. Here is a new design by Reno Orange for "You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."

The idea behind this is a collaborative project: I ask graphic designer and typographer to create unique works. This year edition will feature exclusive designs by Scotty Russell, Milos Milovanovic, Srdjan Vidakovic, Nikki Mihalik, Viktor Baltus, Cody Petts, Jason Carne, Reno Orange, Salih Kucukaga, Jef Millotte, and Ben Johnston. Some of them are still working on the design and they will be shown as soon as possible!
