U N F O L D

U N F O L D  is a stunning new multidisciplinary arts collaboration featuring illustration, animation, poetry, film, spoken word and music across digital and live music platforms.

I was commissioned to design a series of interactive poetry books and for the project. I collaborated with animator Lizzy Rowlatt to bring the books to life as a series of animations.

I have designed and illustrated a series of six poetry books for UNFOLD

Each book has its own unique cut+fold design inviting the reader to sculpt a landscape of their own visual poetry. The poetry text on the reverse folds is incorporated into this interactive design.
