Everyone loves receiving post. Unfortunately, the dull thud of letters landing on the door mat is often followed by a disheartening sigh as yet more bills arrive through the letterbox.
Freelance designer Seb Pietrovito (aka Postman Sebaldo) has taken up the challenge to make people love receiving post with a project called I-love-post. People sign up with their preferred postman/woman alter-ego and add their address to a list. All members then receive the list of names and addresses and start sending inspirational post to complete strangers.
You could receive embossed Smarties lids, cake recipes, dried-out butterflies or directions to a ’shoe tree’ in Newcastle. ‘The idea came to me as I want to divert people away from communicating online and use post to get their creative juices flowing, the aim is to inspire and challenge others,’ Sebaldo explains.
He is looking for creative people to join the project, which launched last month. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
