Cardboard Information

Fall 2022

tags: design, zine

Cardboard Information is a 24-page chapbook that spotlights the overlooked graphical elements found on packaging. When made legible, these elements reveal not only personal buying habits but also the patterns and codes that facilitate global shipping.

Cardboard Information was curated from a 14-week project where I collected the graphical elements from every package I received in the mail. The entire collection consists of over 170 pieces of cardboard, plastic, and paper.
