CIP: Paper Folding & Binding

Today we were looking at ways of folding paper in order to create some basic binding methods and book ideas.

We looked at a few different ways of folding such as the accordion fold and one sheet folding to make books, which were really effective in making draft and tester books. Although I don’t think that they look right for this project as to me the brief is asking us to make a professional portfolio and I don’t think these methods fulfil this outcome.

At the end of the session we were shown some tutorials on YouTube, one of these being from Sea Lemon. I highly recommend watching her videos of clarity and some really great tips as I watched lots of videos last year when we were given perfect binding tutorials in studio, such as the one below.
