In Greece, religion still holds an important role in everyday life. Even for those who might not be practicing orthodox Christianity, its references are strongly interconnected with pop culture and design. This awarded notepad’s typography is the one used in orthodox churches and scripts. It reads: “Yper Anapafseos” which means for eternal rest. During Sunday mass, people can give the names of their loved ones who rest in peace in order to be read out “Yper Anapafseos”. What they do in “Hartovasilion” (the paper kingdom) is to promote greek design by combining high-standard aesthetics with top-quality local production.
You wake up early by the seaside of a Greek island and dreamily go to grab a freshly baked bread and fruit for breakfast. You’ve definitely seen this paper bag there. This is the typical Greek grocery’s paper bag in its durable version. Great to use as a lunch bag.
This is the little retro notebook to be packed for your next trip. The beautiful typography on the cover reads “Ekdromikon” which means journey in Greek.
