Insecta Iridesse
by Plus Collaboratives

PLUS Group

Plus Collaboratives disrupted the way colours and printing methods are presented by showcasing the metallic print effects in the form of 3D iridescent gem-like jewellery pieces.

These gem-like jewellery pieces look like rare insect species and are made almost entirely of paper printed with the new ink.

The studio then completely reimagined the colour swatch into a fictional story documenting the findings of these gem-like insects, letting them showcase the different print effects like never before. This was complemented with an exhibition for a more hands-on experience.

This project has been longlisted in the graphic design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
