Poster'd by Folk

December 2016 to November 2017

Year we go again

Poster’d is an annual internal project we set ourselves end of 2015:
design a poster of each month’s most notable event/s
keep it surprisingly obvious.

From light-hearted to heart-breaking, they recall another year passed.

We hope you remember them well.
