Over the years, I’ve received awesome posters, shirts, books, etc in the mail from colleagues. As a reply to those friends, I began mailing out oversized hand addressed envelopes. Inside each parcel was a note and a tote saying thank you. As they were mailed out i’d instagram a pic to document them before they left my watch. Some of the recipients ended up pinning the tattered envelopes to their walls which gave them a new state of being. Seeing them framed was the poke needed to make this personal project happen. Do Not Open brings something that was specifically available to friends and family to the general public. You can submit an address (yours or a friends) and for a fee, a uniquely hand-lettered envelope will be carefully packaged and mailed to you. You can find out more info about the project here.
