This is the most creative use of a Closed Gate Fold we’ve seen in a long time! This clever annual report brochure looks like a silver laptop (complete with curved corners), and when opened to the interior it reveals a 16-page stitched booklet. Designed by Susan Boettner of Stensland Design in Marina, California, and printed by Community Printers for Monterey-Salinas Transit, this idea is guaranteed to spark your creativity.
