Client : Twinkl Educational Publishing

FUT Client Image - TwinklTwinkl is a digital educational publisher, creating digital resources for teachers to use in the classroom with children of all ages. I worked for Twinkl as a graphic designer and paper engineer for three years creating hundreds of educational paper crafts for use in the classroom and at home. As Twinkl offers the paper crafts as part of their subscription model none of the work I designed whilst with the company are available for download on the Fold Up Toys website, but are available though Twinkl for subscribers.

About Project

This model was created as part of the Twinkl Christmas 2017 range. The model features a clean and minimal style using white outlines instead of black, this both made the overall design look more vibrant but also references the Enkl range which was canceled just before work on this holiday papercraft selection began.

Many sketches, designs and concepts that were planed to be part of the Enkl Christmas range were moved to the main range which may explain why the 2017 Christmas selection of papertoys has an even mixture of clean and minimal pieces and more traditionally Twinkl styled resources.

Designer Notes

This set of box baubles included 6 different designs, although I’ve only included my favorite 4 in this portfolio post. Re-visiting the Twinkl site the resource has been uploaded several times with different names and preview images, so I assume they were quite popular. Here’s a look at some of the different previews (note, the photograph preview on pink is my original preview). I also designed a set of round baubles, but haven’t included them in my portfolio because they weren’t very fun to build.
