About the print: “Connect the dots” is a game played by two people to pass the time. You start with a sheet of paper filled with dots spaced equally and you move by connecting two dots with a line. When you place the last “wall” of a single square, the box is yours and the player with the most boxes at the end of the game is the winner.
This hand drawn game was translated into a design by scanning the game being played at various stages, as played by two design students waiting for class, over several days.
It has significance because it also links to the concept that life is about connecting experiences. And that it is through connections that one is creative.
How they are made: First they collect the brown paper from a local packaging factory. This is then screen printed with a certain design. The printed paper is then fused to a special cotton to make it strong enough to stitch. At the end the sleeve is sprayed with Nano Liquid Glass to be water resistant.
There is a pocket-sleeve tucked under the flap, in front of the main pocket, to give you a place for cables, papers or your stylus. The sleeve closes with two magnets that won’t damage your device.
