Inspiration through the post
Our little nostalgic hearts jumped when we discovered Erik Marinovich’s wonderful project called ‘Do Not Open’. The San Francisco designer mails hand-painted envelopes to anyone around the world you’d like him to.
Not only is the project a wonderful and intimate throwback to the days of letter writing – there is still a real thrill about receiving a hand-written letter through the post – the typographic designs are breezy, fun and beautiful.
A quick Hoodywink poll, and we’d all be happy to have our addresses feature on the front of a hoody if it was created with such aplomb. Useful if you accidently leave the hoody on the beach too… Return to sender!
You can submit an address and, for a fee, a one-of-a-kind hand-lettered envelope will be carefully packaged and mailed to you. The series will be limited to only 250 envelopes and international orders are welcome.
