2015 Film Fest Calendar (Video)
This week, PaperSpecsGallery.com calls attention to 2015 Film Fest Calendar. Lights! Camera! Design! This holiday calendar gift sets an identity-packed scene with engaging script, brilliant paper plotting and thrilling illustrations (Click the video above or click here to view).
Every year, Taylor Design creates a calendar to be mailed to their prospects, clients, colleagues, and friends. 2015's theme, formatted as a six-panel, accordion-folded card, is all about fan-favorite films.
The illustrations are this fan’s favorite—they’re witty, thoughtful, and filled with bright colors that print beautifully on the Royal Sundance Fiber. A bonus reel of film trivia was attentively researched and included on each panel.
Additional Scene Stealers: great typography choices; a film strip illustration running down the side of the mailing envelope; perfs between panels making it easy for recipients to separate and display the individual months; and diecut, half-moon corner notches. This team gets a huge thumb’s-up for their feature design.
