Sample of papers

A rain of wings and stars, where flowers and leaves also travel in flock. We have created a “winged box”, where a Hummingbird, a Crane, an Owl, a Finch and a Dove give life to the project through a luminous paper trip. On each slide, we see a flying bird under a sky of twinkling stars and different floral universes harmonious with each other. Everything takes movement almost without words. We have designed a visual lively scenario of delicate finishes. A silent and poetic object.

We researched the way in which the eyes trick the mind. All this research coalesced into one conclusion: our visual perception is still too limited to handle all the information provided by our eyes and as a result our minds take shortcuts. Our brain repeatedly chooses the most likely interpretation of what we see. The quest to understand how we perceive the world continues and offers intriguing insights into our perception.

Paper Flight aims to amaze through a delicate and precise architecture, like a clock mechanism that silently sets the time, in which typographies subtly define the essential. This object was the result of a teamwork effort between designer and printing professionals. Its complexity lies, among other things, in the use of laser technology for cutting high-grammage papers, producing very thin and slightly separated windows that form the screen that allows to visualize the nature of each flight.

This two-dimensional kinetic art object highlights all the possibilities that a great materiality provides to graphic design. The creative challenge consisted in designing a visual scenario of delicate finishes. Each flight, seeks to break with the static and bi-dimensional condition of the impression, presenting itself as birds in full flight, through the aesthetics of the movement that occurs when sliding the inner sheets under the paper screen of the cover stimulating the eye through simple visual effects.
