The proper post is in the making but in the meantime we just wanted to share the good news that two books we designed last year were shortlisted in the competition “The Most Beautiful Books of the Year” organized by the Polish Association of Book Publishers. Thanks to the jury and to the Museum of Gdańsk and the Castle Museum of Malbork for the amazing collaborations!
We are super happy to share that Sapientia aedificavit… book that we designed for the Castle Museum of Malbork got awarded in the Communication Arts competition and our award arrived last week (just in time for my birthday, too). We are awed to see the book among so many incredible winners. Here‘s the CA site for 2020 with winners in the Books category (but check the other categories as well, great stuff there).
For this Easter we wish you rebirth of joy and peace!
May we all spend wonderful holiday at home.
(Doodling still recommended.)
And here’s a bonus card, by J.
May the New Year be joyful and peaceful for all of us and bring only good changes!
May you have wonderful Christmas time and may it fill you with peace and joy!
Best Christmas wishes from re:design
(Also, we know we’re late this year but a combination of overwork and cold made these Christmas preparations intense and stressful and something had to give. Still, the wishes are a bit more intense for every hour they are late. XOXO!)
Even though most of us are still a little bit sick, we had an intense weekend, which included cleaning, ornament making and, most importantly, card making. It’s so late in the season and the post office is sure to bring the print version to people some time for Easter but at least we’re doing it (and it’s fun). (Also, we mostly send it online so it will be on time.)
In this little preview of our process you can see us cutting elements of the card out (almost all of us – we don’t fully trust our one-year-old with sharp tools yet). Come back soon for the awesome (hopefully awesome?) finished version.
And how far along are you with your seasonal preparations? It’s a mess, amirite?
We spent almost the entire weekend working, which we try not to do normally, and we only found a little time to start on our pre-Christmas cleaning (it might be early but we usually don’t manage to do a half of the things that should be done if we start it like normal people do; I guess we’re slow and disorganized?). So we dusted our bedroom ceiling, doing everything they say on ladder stickers not to do. (We’re okay. We’ve got a lot of experience.)
In what might or might not be related to last week’s post, most of us have colds. See you next week.
