Continued mark exploration > Playing around with a slightly different form factor.
The full read on the page sort of takes a minute (at least for me, and I drew the damn thing)... But it's kind of a satisfying play on the negative space.

much better :) inlove :)
Hmm. I think that previous version was better. This after unfold will be very strange shape, don't you think? But concept very good.
Oh, I'm torn...! Have things about both that I love. There's something with this one that just gives a weird balance to it, even if you can see that it's a clever idea.
I like this one better! MUCH more clever to me.
I think this is one example where the concept is more clever, but it doesn't seem to help convey the idea as well. The previous shot was very effective at communicating that dog-eared appearance of the typical document icon. This one, while a clever play with the space, seems to show less "fold" to me.
While I really enjoy the first version, both have a great execution!
Think I prefer the first one.
A bit thick for paper. This one looks nicer but the first seems like less work to comprehend.
Because the cross symbol is so ubiquitous, people seem more apt to recognize it first and assume the "fold" is actually just a triangular connector of some sort. It takes a while to perceive it as a paper fold.
Although this solution is more clever, I think your first variation is actually clearer, albeit a bit strange in form.
much better! Love this!
It's an interesting iteration, but I have to agree with @Ryan Ford --the paper fold/earmark motif is a depth adding element which which doesn't read as immediately here as much as it reads as a filled corner.
I think folding one arm of a cross is more obvious than a page being folded on one corner with the remaining three corners cut out of it--even if it is a clever way to draw a cross and a piece of paper all at once.
Hey Michael, do you think it'd be worth getting rid of the stroke along the angle of that corner? Maybe it's the just the fact that there's less contrast drawn between the white of the cross and the grey of the fold because the black between them is so stark. Might just be an optical illusion issue here.
I know my above critique, in addition to others, stem from not seeing a fold as much as a corner here, but looking back at the first iteration I also don't see a document within the cross--even if the fold is more obviously a fold.
Definitely more subtle, but I do like them both—very hard decision. I'm all for the more subtle approach to marks, but I think it'll depend on what you want the user to see first. Great concept Mikey Mike!
I see "Swiss paper" :)
This is tough, but my vote goes for #1
this is the best so far.
I agree, these are all great but the simplicity of this one is my fav.
