Arctic Paper traditionally produces an agenda each year with a new concept (previously). This year Munken invited five graphic design students from NABA (Nuova Accademia Belle Arti) to create and design the agenda. The five designers came up with a concept of Bittersweet, inspired by their Italian roots, upbringing, and heritage. By focusing on the feeling of looking back, they wanted to create a concept build on that bittersweet melancholy of growing up. The Munken Agenda 2019 takes the reader through a visual, and somewhat emotional, journey through the past decades of Italy.
The pages of the agenda transport you to the days gone past, with numerous beautiful photographs from the designers personal and family archives, with every Sunday page telling a short story from their childhoods. The personal anecdotes, images, and notes create a magnificent agenda, simultaneously feeling intimate and inspiring.
As an over a decade long tradition, the Munken Agenda offers each year a new inspiring concept and a matching execution, having become a much sought out item among paper enthusiasts, and like-minded. It’s more than a diary, yet a cherished daily companion to help you keep track of your time.
The extraordinary concept and design are brought alive by exquisite printing by Göteborgstryckeriet in Göteborg Sweden and outstanding papers by Munken. The agenda is printed on four different paper shades from the Munken Design range; Kristall, Polar, Lynx, and Pure in 100 gsm, all available at Europapier. One of the many qualities of the agenda is the unique thread sewed open binding technique, which allows the agenda to stay flat when opened. The binding was realized at Nordens Grafiska in Malmö Sweden.
The agenda is printed in a limited edition so you better hurry and get yours before it’s too late at Arctic Paper online shop
