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. The model features “hidden math” many of the lines and measurements that make yup the model interplay with one another similar  to 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

Fun fact : I’m not a huge fan of this model, the concept was sound but I didn’t have enough time to fully realize it. It’s no coincidence that the same year this was released my client promotional model was also a robin with similar structure. The model I released is near unrecognizable to this simple robin for Twinkl, but given more time the two would be more similar and I would have likley not felt the need to get the concept out of my head in my own time. THU - Christmas Paper Toy Craft Decoration - Skate Robin - Thumbnail
