Alcoholidays Calendar 2014

(4 years ago)
 1 Trick Pony celebrated their 10th anniversary by creating Alcoholidays, an awesome 3D calendar of their drunken nights. "We had to commemorate the occasion in true, ridiculous, and over-the-top style. We created 12 new holidays for our clients to celebrate throughout the year, casted different men from the agency as models for each month, and put the ladies in control to flip the pin-up calendar stereotype on its head. We wrapped the whole thing up in a 2-color overprint technique that required custom decoder glasses to see, and bound it on a die-cut chipboard that was silkscreened in-house. The result was 365 days full of Alcoholiday cheer."        Related Posts:Limited Edition Couleur NouveauMeatropolis: Butcher Shop & Grill House
