Armenian ransom magnets by Proper Company. From Armenia, with love.
In the last 4 years, Peno Mishoyan moved to Yerevan from Aleppo, met his future wife and fellow artist Marianna, started creative firm Proper Company with her, and is now a doting dad to their daughter and key business partner, Nanor.
Together, they created the Zanazan (Ar-menian for “various”) Magnets, which consist of 330 letters and symbols drawn by hand, later digitized, and then printed using a specific die-line that allows the user to tear off the letters and separate them from the sheets--like magazine clippings used in ransom notes in 1980s action films.
