MultiAdaptor was asked to promote Think With Google, which publishes marketing research, articles and case studies, to creative companies and brands. The agency was initially asked to design an exhibition but decided to create an interactive product that could be sent out to potential readers instead.

Conductive ink was screen-printed on to paper pages and can be activated with a standard graphite pencil.
