Instead of summing up the old year we’d rather plunge right into the new one. This year we had a pleasure of doing several calendars and the first to present fits well with the carnival spirit. This is a promo wall calendar for a basketball team, Lotos Gdynia. Each page presents one player stylized-until-hardly-recognizable to 20s flapper look, which is the time when the city of Gdynia was built. Our friends at Słoma&Trymbulak are responsible for photos and the idea while we did design and extensive photo editing.
We are pleased with how it turned out, particularly because there is no sports feel, something we’re generally not excited about. Also, it’s hard to tell when you only see the end product, but it really impressed us how the girls of the team were transformed by make-up and clothes (and a little bit of editing) into fashion models. To convey the feeling of an era we used Neutra.
Cover presents portraits of all the girls and the manager. The calendar is 48×60cm.
