Calitho Commemorative Flag

The folds which create dimensionality. The larger format which creates an impact. The metallic gold spot color which adds visual interest.

The design is bold, simple and graphical which makes it stand out.

– Kit Hinrichs

We have to salute the team at Studio Hinrichs who designed this Calitho promotion to create an impact with size, color and presentation. Standing out at a stately 35″ x 23″, the commemorative rendition of the U.S. flag makes a bold, graphic statement.

Using the Fourth of July and the official induction of California into the Union as inspiration, the piece serves as a great print demonstration for the printer with its 4-color plus 4-spot-color palette. I loved the metallic gold that adds visual interest on the uncoated stock.

All those accordion folds create dimensionality and the illusion of unfurling the paper as you would a fabric flag. The long, narrow finished size poses a challenge for presenting the poster, but the designers handle this beautifully from bellyband to diecut envelope.

Even the graphics for the finished panel sizes have been well planned: red and white stripes with solid white mailing panel on the front of the envelope and a blue field with gold stars for the back. Open the envelope and you see that solid gold field with white stars at each end and a crisp white bellyband with copy introducing the premise of the promo.
