Competing Projects 2022
ahax100 is a special collection of folk patterns with stories from their holders collected by Slovak graphic designer Tomáš Kompaník in an extraordinary publication. One hundred uniquely processed sheets with distinct embroideries from one hundred Slovak villages are put together in a special design box. Each sheet is made out of premium Fedrigoni papers like 300g Acquerello Bianco, 300g Arena Natural Rough and 320g Cottage Premium White. They are refined to the last detail using various printing techniques and print finishes like die-cutting, partial varnish, gold and silver screen printing. The sheets are hand-picked and put together in a premium box, along with a hand-sewn brochure, made from 290g Sirio Color Nero and 120g Arena Natural Rough. The box is covered with 100g Savile Row Tweed Aubergine paper with cotton and textile fibers, which create a tweed fabric structure. It is decorated with a matte metallic foil stamping of an excerpt from the book.
