The Greek custom of commemorating your nameday – a celebration of the saint’s day whose name you were given at baptism – is honoured in this Happy Nameday card. Designed by Athens consultancy Red Design, the card was created as a marketing tool for Metaxa International, owner of drink brands Metaxa and Ouzo 12. It is inspired by the Byzantine era when the nameday tradition started, says group designer Rodanthi Senduka. ‘Golden colours were used in abundance in order to exemplify the importance and magnitude of the celebration of the day,’ she adds.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
