In the development of this assignment, Postal Presents, which is a flat packed gift in a C4 envelope suitable for postage, I experimented with different shapes and materials in cut out designs.
The design I developed is a brightly coloured hanging mobile for a new baby. It is easily recognisable in the flat packed state and easy to assemble.
The hanging mobile is made from brightly coloured polypropylene which is a flexible and versatile material that is also recyclable.
The design consists of two cross cut circles cut specifically to extend out, one larger than the other so the smaller can hang inside the large. Hanging from these are coloured stars that are able to be flat packed.
This postal present is a great gift to send to a friend or relative who has recently had a baby but lives interstate or overseas.
