PressiousArvanitidis’s annual diary, by k2 Design, received an honourable mention in the ‘Self Promotion’ category at the 2017 EBGE awards, Greece’s most prestigious forum for recognising achievement in graphic design. ‘Crooked’ lines that diverge from a diary’s regular lines and bold colours were the main elements of the diary’s design, which included original illustrations of monthly themes, such as Pinocchio in April and mackerel in August—references, respectively, to April Fool’s Day and a Greek colloquialism. The diary also featured the Flexbook binding, a patented technology created in Greece that allows pages to open and stay flat.

Wishes for a 2017 full of health, personal and professional advancement!
