NOTCOT Note: Here’s another article from Anna Corpron of Sub-Studio!
D-BROS is the product arm of advertising and graphic design firm, Draft Co., Ltd. I love almost everything that comes out of D-BROS - very witty 2-D and 3-D products. The Jewelgraphy card above would be great as a stocking stuffer (or as a card). It reminds me of the costume jewelry I used to play with as a kid, only cooler. After the jump are a few of D-BROS’ 2008 calendars. I love how actual ribbons are incorporated into the design of the Ribbon calendar. The Joy by Day by Toy calendar starts as a blank slate but comes with a pack of coded stickers that allow you to decorate it on an as needed basis.
One theme I see running throughout D-BROS’ work is the use of common materials in innovative ways. Their work tends not to be overly precious - the Time Paper clocks above (made of paper) are an example of that, as are the Hope Forever Blossoming vases, which are basically plastic pouches that you fill with water.
