Dymaxion Map

A Dymaxion map is one of the most accurate map projections.; created by R. Buckminster Fuller, is a series of 20 equilateral triangles.

While this map is usually seen flat, I developed a system of tabs and slots to create this interactive holiday card. After much prototyping and testing I developed a die with perforations and scoring, enabling enable construction without the use of any adhesives. One thousand units were printed and perforated, and sent out to clients as a holiday card.

To make sure those who wouldn’t receive a printed card were included, I created this digital animation in AfterEffects to send out as a holiday e-card.
