A nice idea

From design studio Atelier Carvalho Bernau:

design proposal showing over-printed invitation

For every invitation or post card we produce, we print another layer on colour on top of the existing design of the last post card. Additionally to the fact that past invitations are visible underneath the succeeding ones, a bread crumb tail at the top of the card connects all invitations and post cards. This is one element of the house style that will reappear in other applications.

Look up cloud quantity, see organization, suction, cascade (antonym: fixity)
Look up cascade, see deliberation, failure, sincerest repeat
Look up sincerest repeat, see aftermath
Look up aftermath, see fugue, history, perceptible color

Look up painting, see critical inches, see color (above), cobalt gray viridian gray gray lake inch, look up
Look up inch, see premonition, fabric, millimeters
Look up millimeters, see wider films, see fate ramble, fate flicker, reality sucking up fate . .”

That’s the best description of how I browse the web I’ve ever read…
