The Goat is one of the 12 Chinese animals of the zodiac and is represented in the Metapaper zodiac card set. The card set was produced by our Print Partner, Gallery Print, in cooperation with Factor Design, PAGE Magazine, Metapaper and with support from Mohawk. The goal of the project was to create a print product that would not only inspire agencies, designers and all print and paper lovers but also give personal and personality insights to support their daily work practices. You can find more information on the project in the Metapaper Blog.
To reflect the gentle and calm character of the goat, EXTRASMOOTH White was selected as the motif carrier. The goat itself was screen printed in white and as is customary for screen printing, the high colour application makes for a tactile effect. And the slight unevenness of the paint results in a nice contrast with the velvet smooth touch of the EXTRASMOOTH.
