Marking 200 Years of Independence
A collaboration to be proud of. Parachute® was commissioned by the Benaki Museum to create a print collection in the event of Greece's bicentennial celebrations for independence from Ottoman Turkish rule 200 years ago.
Featuring a line of posters, stationery products, a tote bag and a matchbox to spark fires of independence, this anniversary collection is inspired by the typography of manuscripts of the pre-revolutionary period.
Set in PF Grecia - an upcoming release - these products are created on the occasion of the Benaki Museum’s exhibition "1821 Before and After".
