Marx Christmas Gift

We believe that the best work happens when the intensity of work is balanced with the creativity and inspiration that occurs during leisure time. So as a thank you to clients for a stellar 2016, we created a daily planner with a twist, one that helps the client better balance their work and down-time, without giving precedence to one over the other.


To be true to the notion that work and life should be considered in equal weighting, the entire project was designed so there is no ‘right way up’, with each component designed to be read and orientated two ways. Central to the gift is a set of 12 planners that stack on top of each other back to back, all locked together by a central spine allowing each month to be torn away as they are used. This brick-like stack of books were neatly cocooned in a cardboard sleeve with perforated tear-tabs for opening, all housed by two cloth bound box trays – the ‘Leisure’ side containing a pencil and the ‘Labour’ side a pen.
