The Teardrop Folio is an updated take on your typical portfolio tube. The circular shape tapers into a soft point, which allows for easy extraction of its contents and prevents rolling.

DATE December 2014
Developed and designed with Aaron Tansil, the Teardrop Folio was inspired by our experiences as graphic design students struggling to carry large sheets and rolls of paper on our commute. We created Folio, a series of organizational cases aimed at art and design students and professionals made from premium materials designed to improve your carrying experience. A dust bag protects the Folio when shipping or not in use.
The Teardrop Folio was featured on a episode of the CBC’s Our Toronto (the Teardrop is introduced at 3:05 of the video) in February 2015, amongst other work completed by design students at George Brown College.
