envelope

bachelor project, 2021

For my bachelor project I chose the word 'envelope' as I wanted to challenge the definition of the envelope, that it needs to contain a letter inside of it, and the first idea that pops into peoples' heads when they think of envelopes. The thing that makes an envelope different from any other poster or booklet in the context of designing, is the folds and flaps, which is something I focused on. I worked with the idea of revealing and uncovering the messages, that the receiver would only know what was written at the final stage.

For the contents of the envelopes I focused on spreading positive messages people might need to be hearing since we are living in quite a strange and difficult time at the moment. I worked with lino printing because I wanted there to be a personal feel to the envelopes, focusing on the texture and even accepting the human error mistakes that come with it.
