Probably one of the most unconventional communication projects I have dealt with so far. Valerio Baroncini is the chief news editor of a

to write the name of the newspaper plays on the principle of “past experience” codified inside the Gestalt theory: you read it correctly
only if you have heard the name before (which in this case is expected from any person who has lived in Italy).
A feature I decided to add is the possibility of cutting the card into a square as shown below: information was layed out in such a way that this operation causes to exclude all references to the paper leaving only Valerio’s personal information.
