With the success of his promotional coasters still fresh, Fabien Barral partnered with Lettera Magica to design and produce a calendar.
The idea was to have an individual card for every month, each one printed in two colors—black + a seasonal tone (blues for winter, green for spring, etc.)
When the calendar was ready, I designed and set up a dedicated website for presale, that would enable us to get enough money to actually produce the final piece. After one month, we started production, which was a lot more complicate than we initially expected. But well worth it when I see that after selling them for a couple of months we only have about 20 calendars left.
Don’t you just want to sink your nails in that paper? and the full color palette is well worth any printing troubles they might have encountered along the way.
