Future chronogrammes and time mail stickers


Time Mail is parody graphic design imagining an extension of Royal Mail ten years into the future where time-travelling mail is as ordinary as sending airmail. Aerogrammes become chronogrammes, international becomes intertemporal, and air mail stickers become time mail stickers. This piece may slot into a proposed co-design research project that includes an element of researcher-created speculative fiction as its entry point to the design prompt. The fiction is designed to help embed the idea of ‘time mail’ in the workshops and activities, providing context as participants explore whether reframing the way we see our future selves can help us create letters from the future offering support.
