Designer Alessandra Mondolfi has “hand” made enough said., a collection of pop-up greeting cards that simply use hand gestures to get their message across. From “The Finger” to a “High Five” (and many more in-between), Alessandra’s cards may be the perfect greeting when words escape you.
I have always held my hands in high esteem. They are what allows me to be a maker, a hands on person who transforms materials in order to express myself. But, I also use them very energetically when talking and have recently been looking at them as a form of communication.
Hand gestures are a form of nonverbal communication which are used to convey particular messages, either in place of speech or together and in parallel with spoken words. They are culture-specific and can convey very different meanings in different social or cultural settings.
I made these cards and called the series “enough said” because I think no words are really necessary, I hope the graphic nature of them says it all but if you wish to add text feel free to do so.
