Design agency Seismik uses moiré pattern to clever effect

"The packaged printed grill gives people the power of transformation through movement. ... The outer packaging with its printed grid means as soon as people pull the insert out it will cause the effect without instruction needed. As well as the primary kinetic piece on each side there is a secondary more subtle one in the background."

(Nottingham design agency: Seismik)
