All Designers Fold

All Designers Fold is an unconventional abecedarium accordion book that showcases the art of origami in letters. Instead of folding out like a typical accordion book, the book folds out in a square, mimicking the characteristics of folded origami paper. Each letter was carefully folded using origami techniques and with images of the front and back side of each letter.

Typography

This abecedarium has a central theme of Japanese culture, which would naturally lend itself to a Japanese typeface. Koushiki Sans serves as the primary typeface to this abecedarium to contrast, yet compliment, the letter forms made by the origami folding in the book.

Color

The book employs colors randomly chosen from A Dictionary of Color Combinations by Sanzo Wada, who was a Japanese painter and costume designer, as well as a personally chosen color for the background.

Folding is easy,
Designing is hard yet fun,
Why not both at once?
