Papercut

June 28th, 2010

Objective
Create a font by non-traditional materials or by unexpected methods.

Design Strategy
Using origami as inspiration, I designed a typeface using only triangular shapes to recreate the look of folded origami paper. Three tints are used to add dimension and reinforce the concept of paper folded upon itself. For the promotional deliverable, I have devised packaging for origami paper that includes a booklet with folding instructions (for a cute bunny) and a mildly humorous poster.
