Even if your client gigs are rich and rewarding, making you puff out your chest with pride at the end of the day, there’s still value in taking on self-initiated work, either on your own or with your whole studio. The latest proof comes from Korea, where the Seoul-based designers at Triangle Studio have supplemented their modest portfolio with a quarterly publication cleverly titled Try Angle Paper.

The self-generated project not only gives them an outlet to do things they might not get the chance to for clients, like experiment with typography, make their own paper, and create products for themselves (planners, calendars, notebooks, postcards) that they can sell online, but the work also acts as a free advertisement for what the studio can do. We know it’s not a new concept, but that only makes all the more curious: why aren’t more young guns doing things like this?
