Since 2004, Foldedsheet has developed, designed and produced innovative and bespoke publications that visually ‘map’ information.
In the digital age our range of paper based planning tools and mappazines offer an alternative medium for presenting and documenting data, knowledge, thoughts, ideas, facts, figures and stories. The foldedsheet publications provide a unique visual overview. The presentation of information on one large sheet gives the mind an opportunity to wander. This format promotes new discoveries and connections, without the reliance on memory that page turning or scrolling demands.
The Fourbirdsaboating Foldedsheet is being designed in collaboration with artist Luce Choules, and Artistic Director Helen Pateman. The Fourbirdsaboating Foldedsheet will include maps of the journey and places we visit en route, fun doodles, sponsorship logos, spaces to stick postcards sent from the team whilst on expedition, and feature boxes and games linked to the flora, fauna and STEM challenges.
Meet Fourbirdsaboating and Foldedsheet at the Royal Geographical Society
If you would like to find out more about Fourbirdsaboating or Foldedsheet, then come along the Explore expedition and fieldwork planning weekend at the Royal Geographical Society in November 2013. There is a designated section at the event called ‘communicating your discoveries’ and there you will find lots of inspiration and advice on bringing your expedition alive.
