Antalis asked us to design a card using the Arjowiggins paper collection. A pleasure and a hard task since there’s loads of great paper to choose from. We therefore looked for a way to combine multiple types of paper.

Coming close in times of social distancing

We wanted to create a rich surface containing two types of texture, the backside providing an additional third. So we were pretty pleased to find a way to combine three types of paper in one card.

Because the card’s message is about distance and proximity, we selected the most ‘physical’ papers.

The papers we selected have got an high tactile feel to them, from sandpaper-rough tot rubbery and soft. Placing them together gives quite a contrast in feel.

By not using ink at all, we allowed the paper to speak for itself.
