Athens—a city with a historical importance battered by the financial crises. Listening to residents one can hear a wide range of voices from very optimistic up to dystopian.

Riso Booklet—Greetings from Greece

Since a few years, a new design trend seems to appear in Greece. The ancient aesthetics, history and traditions of the country serve as a source of inspiration, but are to be reinterpreted. More and more creatives are striving to show a modern Greek style and produce regional as much as possible.
This riso booklet is an excerpt from the diploma thesis “Greetings from Greece” by Xenia Fastnacht from the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe, in which she deals with the contrast between country-specific stereotypes and new creative approaches in Greece.
