Delivery forms and luggage tags are not beautiful, and don't need to be. Cheaply printed, they only have to radiate the assurance that they will cross time and space to find a precise destination, a specific door. A smaller, detachable piece is evidence of the good in transit. Once the mission is completed, the function of both parts comes to an end. Any blank form is an unfinished design,only complete when it has been filled in, paid for and stamped.
The words and demands of our clients - their problems and questions - always inspire us. Further inspiraion comes from the office supply store, filled wih useful objects, and the hardware store with its functional tools and materials. We are intrigued by things like these forms that peform as visual machines: the beauty is in their function.
