The Dieline Awards 2016: 2016 Fedrigoni Calendar- Nixon Design
by Elizabeth Freeman on 05/19/2016 | 2 Minute Read
Made up of over 30 different types of paper from Fedrigoni’s ranges, the 2016 calendar is designed to encourage a manual assembly of combinations to create individual dates. Every day of the year (366 in 2016) has a unique colour combination that is never repeated. The calendar is perpetual and can be used regardless of the year, creating further new combinations, while variations and paper types are discovered through the daily physical interaction.
“It’s a privilege to work on a piece of print that is produced to this standard,” said Ryan Bartaby, lead designer on the project from Nixon. “The calendar is a sought after item across the UK design community and it was important to create a functional yet beautiful end result, that ultimately promotes Fedrigoni paper to users such as designers, art directors, specifiers and printers”."We’ve worked closely with Fedrigoni over the years to produce compelling print for our clients. We love to push the boundaries and introduce an array of specialist techniques to always produce unique and luxurious results. Although a client in this instance, you couldn’t ask for a more helpful supplier” said Dave Brayford, Production Manager at Nixon.
The calendar was printed in Italy by Fasoli, and features a range of techniques including laser cutting, debossing and foil blocking. The format was selected to ensure it was a practical size for even the most cluttered desk.Nixon are one of Cornwall’s leading creative companies, with a team of fourteen designers, web developers and marketers working from their studio base in Hayle, Cornwall. Clients include Tresco Estate, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Luxury Family Hotels, The Duchy of Cornwall, Aspects Holidays and Falmouth University.
