Closed Gate V-Format Pop-Up Hybrid: 60-second Fold of the Week (Video)
This week's featured format is a super-creative idea that solves a longstanding design problem: How can you tuck additional panels into a pop-up format? Finch Paper solved the problem by combining a closed gate format with a V-format pop-up and trimming the fold-in gate panels at the angle of the pop-up.
The result is a hybrid solution that offers the strongest characteristics of both folding styles and a lot of extra real estate for written content and graphics. The intriguing shape invites the recipient to explore and engage. We think you're going to love this creative, dimensional brochure.
