5th Of June Project

I gave you two days, and 100 of you gave me 175 different brands of newspapers in more than 40 languages from across the world. Even if it was one newspaper that you sent, it meant a lot to us.
You gave me 365 days to give you something back, and I have tried my best, I left no stone unturned, I went through a gruelling month of work, put my team through a lot of pressure, here is our labour of love, creativity and passion….The 5th of June Project.
This I dedicate to my wife Sumita, without whose support none of this would have been possible.
I will across the day share a variety of things that we have created.
Colour is something that we never associate with newspapers, We therefore thought of adding some colour to your newspapers…

5th of June project–The countdown begins

It always begins with an idea and then the work starts. You build up on this idea and while this is happening, many new thoughts join in to ultimately create a work of art. After the initial idea, its time to take a call on the process and development that we will follow, we need to understand if this is feasible during the manufacturing and fabrication process. We need to visualise the complete product till its in the hand of the consumer. Many complications arise during the process and we need to improvise, sometimes we need to sacrifice important parts of the idea so that they stay feasible for the latter processes.

Every one can design a great piece and do a sample but the challenge lies in manufacturing or fabricating it in numbers. That’s where are speciality lies, we have honed our skills during the last 15 years to do exactly this. We churn out thousands of pieces with the same consistency and quality, its comes with experience. All our units are set, we have craftsmen and suppliers who have been with us for a decade now.

The countdown for the 5th of June has begun, its time we shared a little of our story that went into this project. To start with here is a picture of the room we created with newspapers. This was just to get my team excited to do something creative with the 5th of June newspapers. The newspapers have been attached in such a way that they can be removed without any damage. We will eventually be using them in our products once our existing stock of the 5th of June papers has been exhausted. I call that recycling for a purpose.
