I was told I'm good with paper toy, so this is what I came up with this for my personal identity. I also wanted something that you can keep and continue playing with it, not just view it once then tuck it away.
All of the following products are made out of paper and interactive. I'll will update with gifs when I have the chance to do so.
I chose to make hexaflexagons for my business cards. The idea came when I was thinking that I am a very fidget person when I have nothing to do. When I was a kid, my parents would give me books to read so I would stay still. From now on, instead of having to refresh social media every 30 seconds, I will have a hexaflexagon in my pocket to mess with.
A H are the initials of my name, and they also repeat many times in my name (I have 4 Hs and 3 As in total) so I chose them to present myself. Both of them have crossbars so I intentionally put AH where the flaps of the hexaflexagons would line up to simulate their missing crossbars.
The hexaflexagon has 3 different sides, the first of which I used to give some instructions on how to open the business cards. Not many people get it on the first try, but it also creates me a chance to converse more with them.
So as I hate things not being precise, on my envelopes I print the dashed lines so I can fold by those guidelines.
The letter inside is folded to create a seal before snugly getting fit inside the envelope. I initially planned to make a logo stamp for the envelope which would be stamped on the flap. This would give the AH the crossbar, much like the business cards, but I have yet got the chance to get my stamp made.
Inside the letterhead, there is also a center point printed for me to fold the letter more precisely.
My porfolio is mini, having just enough space to accomodate 6 projects with each project only featuring a brief description and a photo.
But if you open it up, the back side has a bit more visual for you to get an idea of what a project looks like.
This is my interactive CV. This cube can be continually open up an indefinite amount of time. It is designed so that you can keep it on your desktop and play with from time to time until the paper gives out.
I will update with gif to give you an idea of how it works when possible.
Thanks for watching! Have a nice day :)
