We couldn't love this wrap idea more than we already do. A great find from Parse & Parcel and Legion Paper, imagine layering three sheets of beautiful paper and adding creative diecuts to hide and reveal the colors underneath. Turn it into a wrap and tuck a huge, 10-Panel accordion fold inside.
That's what Colorplan came up with for their swatch book showcasing 50 saturated colors. We think you'll see the potential in using this concept for brochures, annual reports and higher education, so you will not want to miss this week's episode.
