Self initiated poster design for an origami festival in Los Angeles, California.

Origami Festival poster – self initiated

Once browsing through a »typodarium« calendar I stumbled over a typeface that looked like folded paper. The idea of designing a poster for some sort of origami event took hold of me. After some research I came across the festival in Los Angeles and decided to make the idea happen. The final typeface used is a different one than initially found but I’m glad that I followed the spark igniting my imagination. 
 
The square format reflects the most common starting point for Japanese paper folding. The design can be used from posters to postcards. The colours are derived from the event’s website. If you are interested in the design process please visit my work in progress page.
 
I donated the poster design to The Japanese Garden, Van Nuys, CA.
