Quick experiment with a technique which I picked up from Greyscalegorilla

Plymouth Christmas Market 

Print Concepts: Twist Fold

This mockup Mailer for The Plymouth christmas Market uses the Twist fold. The Twist fold is highly attractive and equally intriguing. The fold must finish to a square format, the downside of this is that square mail is more expensive due to not being machinable the upside however is that the Twist fold can be used to house further inserts.

Plymouth Christmas Market 

Print Concepts: Snake Fold

This mockup Mailer for The Plymouth christmas Market uses the Snake fold. The snake fold can consist of as few as four panels and can be invested with as many panels as necessary. however the more panels the more unwieldy the fold becomes. another downside to this fold is that it the process of unfolding it is not intuitive, so a heavier weight paper card is required to limit the possibility of accidental tearing.

These problems aside the snake fold is an impressive and enjoyable format which lends itself well to image heavy publications.

Tangible Type

I am an avid digital artist. I love Photoshop, cinema 4D and many, many other wonderful programs which allow me to do so much. However I also love making things.

Tangible Type is a self initiated project which I undertook in order to create imagery which I would usually create through using  software, I wanted something solid, something which could be appreciated from all angles but when viewed as 2D images would still bring up the age old question; “is this real”.

To achieve this I created foot High letter forms (augmented Eurostyle) from stacks of laser cut MDF.  I then used these to form molds so that I could sand cast the letters in glass.Once cast, each letter was frosted and embedded with multiple LED bulbs, with portable battery packs.
