Poster'd by Folk

December 2017 to November 2018

Another year goes bye

Poster’d is an annual internal project we first 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.
