Project Description

My goal was to provide the user with a physical way, of matching each glyph with their respective Unicode entities. A folded poster just seemed like the natural approach, as it not only allowed the user to see all icons on the same page but also made it easier and less expensive to ship.

Production Lesson(s)

Working on a tight budget and folding paper yourself, may become a real challenge, as it is very easy to wreck a couple of posters before you get the hang of it.”
