Creative application/C.V

Client:
Personal project

Brief:
I love origami and kirigami, so I decided to use my love of paper folding to create a fun summary of my C.V, portfolio and short application. I wanted it to be fun to look at and use, I would then send it to selected design agencies, or companies I’d like to work for. As many companies wont accept printed applications, only pdf’s, I also needed to make it easy for the person receiving it to assemble. The basis of the design is a really cool piece of paper folding called a tetratetraflexagon, I came across it when I was a child and have always loved making them, as it feels like magic.

Outcome:
Here is the final design, which helped me to get my last job. The amazing thing about the tetratetraflexigon is that once assembled it appears to be a 2 sided piece of paper, but in fact, it has 4, which can be revealed very simply.

Here are the instructions I created to go with the design as the first page of the pdf I sent out, which explains how to print and assemble the design.
