Joana Niemeyer, (…), approached us to ask if we wanted to contribute to a fund-raising event where ‘one-off’ christmas cards, designed by various artists and designers, would be auctioned. (…)
Requests like these are always difficult to turn down, but since we had simply no time to put too much work in this, we had to pull something together quite quickly. We took a ready-made A4 stickersheet (divided into 24 die-cut labels) and laserprinted 24 christmas greetings on the sheet, in chronological order. The result looks as if it’s a fragment taken out of of a larger, perpetual calendar; some kind of utilitarian, all-purpose christmas card. Eventually, it’s a design that refers to the seemingly endless monotony of time.
