2019/06/12 10 years of life

On 16 June, exactly ten years will have passed since Kateřina Šachová presented her diploma thesis at UMPRUM and the whole papelote with it. Because that's how the whole concept of new Czech stationery was born - as a diploma of a graphic designer, whose aim was to revive the forgotten beauty of paper and stationery as such and emphasize the importance of paper in our history and culture, as well as in the present day...

The birth of the diploma thesis was supervised by three pedagogues from the Department of Illustration and Book Design - Juraj Horváth, Michaela Kukovičová and Jan Činčera. Their support, as well as the feeling of creative freedom induced by the university's environment, was of great importance at the creation of the diploma work, and thus papelote itself.


Playful attempts and unrestricted experimenting with various possible and impossible ways are still a source of inspiration at today's papelote. And also the desire to see paper differently, inspect its possibilities and find unexpected solutions, offered by this seemingy ordinary material, is still our mission to this day.
