This promotional notebook seems to be blank at first glance, ready for the new owner to make its mark. But upon further inspection selected french folds reveal further interactive pieces that need to be solved and interpreted.

Project Description

Invited by a reputable bespoke printer to design a notebook for an exhibition, the design direction is to emphasize the importance of appreciating the process. In an over-saturated, sometimes over-aesthetically driven world, people tend to underestimate the value of a journey. By creating different crossword puzzles on the cover as well as within the book, 10 unseen before projects were hidden in the french fold inside the pages.

Production Lesson(s)

Every paper color group was different and randomly put together. The french folds, after many multiple attempts, were finally able to fit into the construct of a threadsewn book with a printed graphic spread within the french fold. The paper used for the crossword puzzles was intended to be very rough and coarse, that is why we are thankful to be able to find one that is very material but also able to take ink well.”
