Les aventures du petit train postal (the adventures of the little postal train)

The Adventures of the Little Postal Train is a new form of postcards with the most delightful combination of paper and digital design.

 

There are 25 cut-out parts in the box which offer an infinite number of possible combinations.  Among these are some special ones which come alive with the help of a smartphone or a tablet.

Personalised cards!

 

In addition to The Adventures of the Little Postal Train, it is possible to order your own personalised cards for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, birth announcements etc.

 

This personalised version will happen in 3 steps:

Step 1: 

You send me your references in terms of landscape or décor your wish to have your design based on, your preferred colors, what you wish to put in the animated images, and a message to communicate.

Step 2:

I will send you an animation storyboard.

Step 3:

At this stage, you can ask for a modification if something bothers you.

 

Here is an example of a personalised card created for Lilia and Diego. They will be getting married very soon and would like 100 cards to thank their guests at the end of their wedding party.  These cards will be put on the dinner tables.

My name is Julie Stephen Chheng and I am a graphic designer.  I experiment with paper, book design and new technologies to create new ways of storytelling!

How did The Adventures of the Little Postal Train start?

 

Each year, I make season's greetings postcards for my family and close friends.

 

Cartes_postales-1432566957

 

For my card this year, I cut out all kinds of forms in fluorescent paper and made a hundred landscapes sending them to my entourage all over the world.

From this, I wanted to share these greeting cards to a larger public in adding little animated surprises!

 

Allocation of funds

How will the collected funds be used?

 

I would like to start a collection of animated cards which The Adventures of the Little Postal Train would be the first creation.  Upcoming creations would explore the themes of the zoo, cities, or historical events.  In order to reach this goal, I need 5000 euros to launch this fabrication of the first 300 copies of The Adventures of the Little Postal Train.

 

I was able to absorb the costs of graphic design and illustration for this project, but I still need to bear the costs of animation creation and digital development of the cards.  Thanks to your contribution, I will be able to create the digital part of the project !
