The Standard Hotel chain made use of their 2013 customer evaluations in a creative way. Under the direction of Erik Kessels and photograph Thomas Mailaender, the hotel rolled out a quirky calendar that references twelve of the strangest letters, suggestions and complaints collected from their guests.

Good thing there is a small explanation on each page, or else it would be impossible to understand what is happening in the photo.

So if you have ever left a comment card at The Standard, be prepared because your idea might be one of 12 peculiar calendar ideas for the new year. Continue reading »
