Unfolded is a design and print festival that celebrates the creative work happening across Europe in the disciplines of design, printing and brand communication.

Trika is an interior design company, working on both public and private spaces, with a showroom and studio in the Croatian capital of Zagreb. They represent furniture and equipment manufacturers such as Billiani, Enea and Federicia, amongst many others, whose brand names are described as being synonyms for quality, comfort and design.
Graphic design studio Bunch worked with Trika to develop a new brand identity. This included logotype, business cards, notebooks, tote bag and website. Bunch’s work frames some lovely project photography and distils down modern contemporary interior and furniture design into a simple and functional graphic expression, elevated by material detail.
