Since 2017, Fedrigoni UK has collaborated with design studio TM (TsevdosMcNeil) to unite creatives in an annual publication called Fedrigoni 365. It started playing with the concept of a calendar, but it turned out to be so much more. For each edition the creative community has been invited to contribute a design that interprets a date of the year provided to them at random. For the 2024 edition a selected group of international designers have also been invited to participate, broadening the project’s reach even further. Together, these designers contribute to an endlessly diverse and vibrant time capsule of creative talent.
This edition of Fedrigoni 365 celebrates individuality, utilizing HP Indigo® digital technology to create unique designs through colour shuffling. As with previous editions, designers were asked to interpret a randomly allocated number. Departing from traditional litho print, the collaboration with HP Indigo® has expanded creative possibilities, resulting in 731 distinct entries across two volumes. With the addition of Indichrome Orange and Indichrome Green, this edition showcases an expansive color gamut, pushing the boundaries of traditional printing. The collaboration between Fedrigoni, the London based printer F.E. Burman, and HP Indigo® ensures that Fedrigoni 366 2024 stands as the epitome of cutting-edge digital printing.
For the first time, it will be possible to get a closer look at Fedrigoni 365 project. We are excited to invite Fedrigoni’s followers to an engaging series of talks unravelling the secrets behind the production of Fedrigoni 365 publication. In collaboration with the 2024 edition’s partners TM, F.E. Burman, and HP Indigo®, this session promises an insider’s perspective into the creation of the annual Fedrigoni 365 publication. The Talks will be held in person at Crafts Council in London next Wednesday 13 December (online live streaming will also be available).
