Fedrigoni 365: Lantern contributes to charity design compendium

We were thrilled to be asked to submit a design to Fedrigoni's beautifully printed book celebrating each day of the year 2018.

The book is a showcase of unique interpretations of the 365 days of the year, with each page featuring a different design from a leading UK-based creative agency. The book itself is printed on Fedrigoni's premium Sirio Ultra Black paper and in solely metallic silver ink – what a beaut!

We were tasked with creating an interpretation of the number 10 for January. As a month of dark nights and chronic post-Christmas-come-down we chose to focus on bright and warm neon letting.

"With the atomic number of 10, neon is an element famously used to create luminous signage. Glowing warmly day and night, rain or shine, a neon sign is a beautiful way of displaying giant letters or numbers."

The calendar launched in December 2017 with an exhibition at Fedrigoni's London head office presenting each visual exploration of the 365 days of the year. All proceeds go directly to the Make-A-Wish charity so head over to Counter-Print to find out more and buy a copy. You can also follow Fedrigoni's instagram to see each day's design throughout the year.

Our design for winners' guide is unveiled at exclusive awards evening at the House of Lords

At Lantern, we've supported the work of The Print Futures Awards for a number of years. The scheme, which offers grants of £1,500 to help people aged between 16 and 30 years, helps aspiring designers, print makers and creative professionals pay for training courses for a career in printing, publishing and packaging.

Once again we were asked to design the annual awards brochure for the event, this year reflecting the abstract ink in water pattern of the Awards logo, also branded by Lantern.

The awards, which continue to grow year after year, saw a record 88 applicants and 50 winners in 2016, each receiving their Awards at an event hosted by the Rt Hon the Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde and organised by The Printing Charity at the House of Lords.

At the event, Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity's Chief Executive and Secretary said: "We are proud of the Print Futures Awards and their continued growth. I believe that both the charity and the sector have more to do to encourage young talent.

Networking and connections are vital. We are setting up an Alumni programme for this year's and previous winners. The aim is to stay connected with them, introduce them to industry contacts and enable them to hear from leading thinkers in the sector."
