FOIL CATALOGUE |Print design


This is not just a sample of hot foil stamping, but an experimental project that presents genuinely the gold foil as it is. Stamping forty types of hot foil on black, white and red paper, we also apply hot foil on paper with unique features in our effort to discover surprises and sparkles in between, as the colors “fly” off the page. In this project, we are seeking potential rather than making a perfect sample.

The paper itself and the effect of hot foil stamping are likely to change as results of the making/manufacturing process, storage environment and time. However, these changes belong to the work and complete it.



Flowing Design is a design studio pursuing positive social impact through the power of design. 

Besides commercial cases, we also launch several special projects every year. While carrying out these projects, we hope to break through the current situation that besets their development, retain the original intention of design, and seek new possibilities along the way. Over more than a half-year of production, our very first product "FOIL CATALOGUE" finally came to be materialized. It is rare to see other similar items like it. We had faced unexpected challenges and overcame numerous obstacles occurred in die making, paper choosing, process quality controlling, but we gained valuable experience from the process. However, since the manufacture process is much more difficult and complicated, we won’t remake it again. Only 340 pieces are released to the public. This is not just a sample of hot foil stamping, but an experimental project that presents genuinely the gold foil as it is.

完整的不完美。

這不僅是一份燙金的樣品,也是一份讓金箔如實呈現的實驗性作品。 這次的作品將四十種金箔燙印測試在三款常見紙張上作為基本的樣品外;也嘗試使用了特殊的紙張媒材,藉以探索燙金技術與紙張間的激盪。我們希望這過程得到的不只是一份樣品,更是藉此激發更多可能性。

紙張與金箔在製作過程中與保存,皆會因為時間與環境產生程度上的變化,而一切的變化都是作品的一部分。
