Pop-up Folio

My RMIT experience in a pop-up folio

As part of my studies in Graphic Design at RMIT I chose 'Book Binding' as an elective. I gained knowledge in book-binding techniques and developed an appreciation for the hands-on craft. I'd love to own an old style letterpress and be traditonally paper crafty.

'Contract Design' was my other elective. The brief was to create 'something' which was really not clear and directive. It was up to the student to come up with an idea. I thought I'd excel my new found love affair with book binding further and study the art of pop-ups. And to make it really difficult for myself I decided to create a pop-up book that showcased all the work I did during my studies. Half-way through the book production I cursed myself for taking on such a task but I prevailed and am very proud of the final product.
