It all started about a year ago, when our copywriter Alexia decided to ask Evaggelos - our big boss - to read some short stories she had written. Her heart rate reached 200 beats while she was waiting for his feedback. Eventually, after what seemed like ages, Evaggelos came to her and told her that he loved (most of) her stories and that he would be interested in publishing them (fireworks explosion sound). Evaggelos’ idea was to create an umbrella brand with the name CROP, under which small-scale concepts and design products would be sold, including our short stories. And this is how it all began.
The title of our first story is “Cyberchondriac” and it is about a girl who compulsively searches the Internet for diagnoses about symptoms of illness. Aggeliki Gigi, our senior designer, has put all her talent in creating fantastic illustrations for our story. It really is love at first sight. We owe many thanks to our friend and editor Sophia Ladopoulou and Ektipotiki Axion, Printing Office, which made sure that our short story came out just the way we imagined.
Coming soon to a shop near you! And who knows? Maybe we will translate into English, for our friends abroad.
