Design Narrative: The assignment was to conceptualize and develop a special edition paper swatch book which will showcase various samples of paper types, specifications, availability, certifications and other informative material. The swatch book design required various technical elements, such as numerous folds and special finishes.
The Big Idea: I have always been a fan of Van Gogh and I saw this project as a great opportunity to really explore different concepts and techniques with paper. I choose to recreate "Starry Night" because of the numerous colors and textures found within the painting, which inspired the 46 paper choices. Each paper swatch had a unique die cut to unveil the paper colors beneath it and included a sidebar of paper type/weight information. Availability tables and additional paper information was included in a fold out page in the back of the swatch book.
