Usually when people think “interactive card” they probably reflect on that one holiday some chump gave them a card that blasted the Romantic’s 1980 hit “What I like About You” when you opened it. This gives a new (better) meaning to that term. The hand-lettering is absolutely exceptional.

A self-promotion Valentine Card where I decided to explore the concept of shared action where the user becomes an actor in the process of creation (and the diffusion of his love). The stencil seemed the medium most fit to perform this idea.

Wanting to print a small quantity drove me to use silk screen and Laser cut, even if I had to fold all the 80 cards by myself, it helped with the idea of making it personal as you feel every card is special.
