Fedrigoni 365 - 2019
Fedrigoni 365 is an unprecedented collaboration involving 365 UK-based designers, illustrators and photographers, gathered together by an open call for entries.
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.
For the 2019 edition, each design was printed to one of ten white sheets from Fedrigoni’s expansive collection of papers. The resulting book has a mille-feuille-like layering, from the blueish hues of X-Per Premium White, to the warm tones of Materica Gesso and Old Mill Bianco. Each date has a spread of its own, giving the designs space to breathe, and the book itself an imposing size. The resulting white tome is part numeral muse, part source of historic facts and part thing of beauty.
The book has drawn together participants from across the creative industries in the UK. Notable figures and agencies include: Accept and Proceed, Anthony Burrill, Atlas, BCMH, Cartlidge Levene, David Pearson, dn&co., SocioDesign, MuirMcNeil, StudioSmall, OPX, Construct, Paul Belford, Pentagram, Pearlfisher, Two Times Elliot, Together Design, Willliam Hall and Wolff Olins – to name but a few.
This year, profits will go to Shelter, to help fight against homelessness and poor housing in the UK. To purchase your copy of the book, either follow this link to buy it online via Counter-Print, or pop into our London Studio, where you can receive a complimentary 365 tote bag with the book. You're also welcome to stay for a tea or coffee and have a browse through our swatches and printed samples!
