visual playground

The 2017 Visual Playground campaign involved various art objects and stationery gathered from flea markets and shops all around Bucharest. We carefully sprayed them, photographed them in the most flattering light and then we worked our magic until the end (eye-candy) results. We hope you’ll enjoy this wallpaper memorabilia from our last edition. We surely do.
