It’s always fun to hear from Jeff Rutzky. He’s participated in most of the fun quickie contests we occasionally run over at Coudal, drops us e-mails to let us know when he’s found something cool to check out, and was one of the first people to mail us something for our Swap Meat experiment (check out his amazing Kirigami sculpture of Mies van der Rohe’s Crown Hall he made from a Masahiro Chatani design). It makes it all the better that the man’s got loads of talent. He’s the author of several books about Origami and has worked in designing publications, products and a whole host of other projects for an impressive roster of clients, including everyone from Playboy to the Weekly World News. This past month, he finally got around to trying Jewelboxing for the first time, and here’s his report about the project he used the cases for:
“Pro bono, I took a great interest in helping Vanessa Gould and Green Fuse Films to create an identity with a clean, modern look and feel. Her film, Exploring Origami uncovers some of the mystery behind why origami is so intriguing to children, as well as being so critical to modern and future science. I’m also trying to encourage the former-Wall Street exec -turned-film-director to be consistent with fonts and screen graphics. I know she has a limited budget, but free After Effects house calls are just an F-train away.”
Here’s to hoping all is being folded just-so and all the cuts are being made with precision in Washington DC, Cambridge, New York, Jackson, Los Angeles, Colorado Springs, Covington, Utica, Torquay, Monrovia, Columbus, Stevenson Ranch, Bedford, Brooklyn, Lafayette, Valley Stream, Burbank, Santa Barbara, Middletown, Houston, Conroe, Newton, and Jersey City.
