This A5 booklet combines the need for clear information, a clever reply element (the pull out centre 4pp pages have a re-moist glue around three edges) and an equally clever delivery element - as the cover makes it's own envelope by use of a flap and an adhesive tape strip.
Picture above shows outside back cover and the pic below shows the front and back cover with the flap that forms the "envelope" style flap. Text on the cover has also been hot foil blocked in matt white foil which gives a rich contrast with the self-coloured cover board.
The project is designed by biz-R who are based in Totnes, Devon. Creative Director on the project is Blair Thomson and design and (some!) of the copywriting is by Blair Thomson and Tish England.
It was in keeping with the charity's aims to use 100% Recycled materials, so our Colorset Deep Orange 270gsm was used for the cover combined with another recycled text paper ...sadly not on our material (it was on cyclus offset).
Print was by local firm Kingfisher Print and Design based in Totnes, Devon.

For Christmas gifts, they gave trees to their clients. They wrapped the Woodland Trust's own dedication card with this "once upon a tree" cover sheet with an image silkscreened in aubergine on our Colorset (100% recycled) in Dark Grey 270gsm and all finished with an aubergine coloured ribbon. The trees in the image are actually from a wood in Buckinghamshire which Madomat sponsors!

The job is A5 in size and is very simply (but well) printed on our Kapok 500gsm, which is a natural coloured unbleached brown board with excellent rigidity. It has been printed using black and silver (Pantone 877). It's an excellent example of a job where the material has really worked with the design in a very simple and effective way.
Design is by Joe Gilmore at Qubik Design in Leeds. Print is by Northend Creative Print Solutions in Sheffield.

The size of the calendar is A2 (420x594mm). It is glued at the top edge and is drilled with seven holes for hanging and is "round cornered" as well. There is a page for each week and a total of 53 graphic/typographic designers have chosen their favourite typeface for a given letter and give a brief explanation for their choice - it's a great idea and really well executed.
I'm not going to list all 53 but they include people such as David Pearson, Alan Herron, Mike Dempsey, Jeremy Tankard, Phil Baines, Fernando Gutiérrez and the list goes on...! Below is the whole lot in one spread which Li Rui kindly sent me.The calendar was printed on our Eco-Pure Recycled (100% Recycled) 100gsm which was a special making for this project. Printed and finished by DXG Media.
Design Director on the project is Ben Casey at The Chase in Manchester and the designer is Li Rui. http://www.thechase.co.uk/
The calendar was produced in collaboration with the following type companies:

This year it is a lovely red apron with the witty line "This one went over my head" silkscreened on it ...and although I'm not renowned for my culinary abilities, it may well tempt me into the kitchen more often (maybe being a somelier is more my sort of thing...)
So here I am in the Fenner Paper kitchen complete with my Chefs hat (which isn't very tall, otherwise it would look ridiculous!)
Thank you to all at Holmes Wood, especially Lucy and Ali.
