Imaging initial sketches and research

As the days went by, my project took some interesting turns. Initially, I was planning to make the matchbox really simple from the outside and have a booklet with few facts inside, but Maryam gave me a cool idea of keeping the olden style of matchboxes in my project and it really changed my journey to the final product.


Few of the hundreds of matchbox covers I found during research.


Inspired, I started making sketches of the outer booklet. I decided to have the similar cover style for the outer booklets from the same country as I was planning to make 2 matchboxes each from Peru, Malaysia and Qatar.20161012_221704
