MARK MY WORDS – ORIGAMI
My intention for the design of the publication was to complement the text by visually conveying the history of origami, not just as an art form or an evolving word, but as a symbol of cultural exchange. I used various visual elements to reflect the Japanese origins and evolution of the word, and to represent the geometric, interactive nature of the craft.
I sought to pay tribute to the origins of origami through the use of the minimalistic design typical of Japan.
It aimed to invite the reader to participate in the continued passage of origami to non-Japanese audiences through highlighting the materiality and geometric nature of the craft. I also aimed to communicate the essence of folding without necessarily relying on physical folds, but through choice of typeface and symbols.
This project was in response to the 2018 ISTD brief 'Mark My Words'. As a result, Origami was awarded with Merit and granted me membership into the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD).
