The artistic solution
The organiser „My ideas“ replaced usual work calendars for many of our clients. Given the multicultural aspects of the use of the organiser, the design of internal pages dominated by symbols and multilingualism motifs and to highlight the origin of the product in certain elements, the national language is highlighted – Lithuanian language.
classic red and black color scheme is perfect for use in both the business environment and leisure. Organiser‘s cover accent – idea‘s symbol – a lamp (silk screen), and some flashing, silver foil covered dots.
Although both types of paper thickness is almost identical – coordinating different textures and the emergence of translucence creates a surprise effect. Illustrations enliven the publication, intrigue. Three Pantone palette colors are used.
Internal graphics is trigger, dot motif is selected which allows to develop ideas in a creative way.
During his speech at the awards, Marius Skarupskas, Deputy Minister of the Economy of the Republic of Lithuania, said, “It is good to see that somebody is creating things that not only can be read, but also touched.”
