Dana Dijkgraaf started the project with the motivation to use Colback from a graphic design perspective. Dana did research on how the aesthetic properties of Colback could be used as part of publications, of booklets and signage in combination with paper, colourful inks and foils. Dana was also experimenting with different production techniques from silk-screening with neon colours, to printing with holographic foils.

The result of Dana’s research is a collection of graphic designs based on Colback. The collection is aiming to inspire people with the infinite possibilities of Colback nonwoven textiles.

The Colback materials challenged me to define multiple options of applied graphic design. I started with a little hesitation, but then I discovered that the possibilities are infinite.
