This calendar was made as a gift to our clients and friends for the Christmas season in 2010.
Nowadays you rarely receive a calendar, that doesn’t include pieces of chocolate or other candy. For us, the magic of the old fashioned calendars, with their little pictures is getting lost this way.
Therefore, our calendar included 24 photographs that are not necessarily related to product design. They are rather snapshots of our world and how we see it. The handmade cut outs give the product a certain hand crafted quality and depths than can’t be achieved by an ordered serial Christmas gift.
We’ve also included a stand for the calendar, that reminds of a Christmas tree and asks the receiver to handicraft a little. Just like Christmas is supposed to be.
