When I was growing up my parents would take me to Tooting High Street to buy Eid cards for our relatives and even at 11 I could never make peace with why these cards weren’t designed for the times! Imagine pixelated painted flowers, glitter, colour gradients with 8 different tones in them, default scripted typefaces... I always felt frustrated writing in these cards to family in Bangladesh and that it would never reflect my own design sensibilities or choices. During my Summer residency @rabbitsroadpress I finally decided that Eid cards could look like something out of 2018. It’s definitely not about commercialising the celebration, more about still sending handwritten messages to loved ones and having pride in where you come from. This is just work in progress as it’s EID today and I want to save the final version for my family to see (but more pics to come...). Anyway, safe to say I used #fluros, #offwhite#texturedpaper with a nice grain 👌🏽, #scans of my first #papermarbling experiments, #35mmphotos from my trip to #Bangladesh and all printed via #RISOgraph . EID MUBARAK #2018.
