For the Fifth Enor Architecture Prize, Spanish firm desescribir created a lovely, translucent invitation with a great play in transparency when folded.
This is the first design piece we have made for the current edition of Enor Architecture Awards. It is a flyer with information for the architects who want to participate. The elements of identity are geometric shapes, color and typography. The current edition is number five, and then, the pentagon is the geometric shape that identifies it. We built that pentagon making a puzzle of color shapes and folding the paper of very low weight.
It was important to keep the budget low, that’s why we used, with the help of the printer, the ‘iris print’ technique, which allows to obtain different colors, and variations in all sheets of paper, with just two plates of ink. One paper of very low weight has been chosen to achieve the transparency. Printing with this kind of paper is not easy, and requires a good and patient printer.
