Wooden Toy Quarterly

Designed by Timba Smits | Country: United Kingdom

Wooden Toy Quarterly is a heavily designed ‘Boogazine’, half Book, half Magazine. For the new music edition they’ve packaged it in this illustration driven Toybox.

“In the toybox comes one 150 page magazine (230mm x 230mm), an artist print, a 40 page type zine and a certificate of authenticity because these babies are limited edition (only 5000 made) ,and all hand assembled by myself and some friends! For this edition I added a special radial cut to my toybox to reference a record cover. The print shows through the radial cut to further reference a record.”

“This is a monograph for one of the best and oldest high-schools in Zagreb, the 5th Gymnasium. We packaged the book in a pencil-case filled with school utensils (pens, pencils, rulers, etc.) Everything was custom made for this project and branded with school’s visual identity. The school’s curriculum emphasizes mathematics – this idea is reflected in visual identity (upside-down 5 reads like a G).”

“Two different sets of Moleskine volant notebooks, one with high-intensity colors, the other with a lighter palette, were created for the agency in December 2009. Each notebook features a different slogan, among these, “Opportunities aren’t given, they’re made,” “Take your work seriously and yourself, less so,” and “Don’t just sit there, create something,” all in bold capital type embossed on the cover. The agency’s logo is embossed on the back cover and is featured in repetition on the paper band enveloping each set.”

“The task [was] to create the first Year in Review for this newly privatized company. They wanted something special, that would be noticed, read, looked at and kept. We wanted to package this in a unique and relevant way and pitched to the client that the actual book could be put in a custom made ³IV² bag. We had to take it all the way to a Chinese IV bag manufacturer where the bags was made. Only 500 of them were produced.”

Changzhi Lee sent us his portfolio package that he put together to present work when applying for his junior year internship program.

“As I was applying to a design company that believed in environmental sustainability as its key philosophy, I constructed a paper pop up out of paper left over from my other school projects!”

This is a great example of how low-tech, and low-budget can still look great.

Swedish designer Henrik Persson of Become just brought this lovely book package to our attention. I love the amount of work and thought that went into this custom piece. More detailed photos after the jump.

“The book weighs 16 kgs (half meter high when standing on floor) and comes in a vertical standing packaging/display stand made in perspex that literally looks like a building/skyscraper.”
