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.
