At Christmas, we wanted to give our clients and friends a gift that combined the studio’s work style, our identity and the world of design: our typesetting made of candy.

Inspired by Gutenberg’s movable types, we produced mint candies in the shape of the six types for our logo and placed them in a package that was specially designed for the occasion, a kraft card package. The silicone moulds for the candies were made together with Papabubble.

What’s Unique?
We took an item that is essential in the world of printing and design, put a new spin on it and turned it into an original gift that is closely linked to the studio.
