The Mini Oyster Fold – 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's super-cool fold is a fun follow-up to a format featured nearly four years ago on Fold of the Week. Back in episode 152, I shared a huge and incredibly exciting Oyster Fold from Rider Dickerson. Fast forward to 2016, and they sent me a fun, smaller version of the format that they produced for client Robert Morris University in Chicago.
The format works well in a 7x7˝ proportion, and is surprising, fun and memorable as a college recruitment piece. We think you'll love this week's Mini Oyster format!
