Matchbook Exercise

In order to get through slow periods of the day or when I am faced with a creative block, I create a small project that can be completed in an afternoon.  This particular book is a practice in design as well as a creative structure.

The matchbook contains a group of cards with relaxation activities on each one.  The cards are tied together with a braided cord fixed with a button.  The book was designed in Illustrator using a single piece of 8.5 x 11 paper (plus half a sheet for test folding).

This project was inspired by Paperiaarre who does a new matchbook every Monday.  It is such a great idea for keeping the creative juices flowing.
