Soft Waterfall Accordion with Curved Panels: 60-Second Fold of the Week
In a fun contrast to last week's geometric, stepped waterfall accordion, we're sharing a softly curved design to illustrate the creative range of a waterfall technique. Designed by the communications and marketing team at Medical Center Health System for client Pink the Basin, the soft waterfall of curves are designed to support the content and provide a dynamic and organized reveal. The piece was produced by Slate Group in Lubbock, Texas, where they applied a soft touch coating for extra sensory impact. Simply gorgeous!
