Paper Sculpture

Friday Inspiration. Zim&Zou for IBM.

A little Friday inspiration from Zim & Zou. The magnificent posters were created for Ogilvy for a poster campaign for IBM back in 2013. Photographed by Fabrice Fouillet, the sculptures are built from cut paper and fabric. There is solid attention to detail paired with smart copy, and solid backgrounds in vibrant colors. The result is a really nice campaign that gets translated into a series of animated gif’s. Below are the posters, a few of the gif files and some detail shots. For the complete series, click here.

Just In Time for Halloween. Low Poly Animal Masks.

animal-mask-set

I was looking for some inspiration this morning for a project I am working on with a Halloween theme this morning and my search results led me the Etsy page of Wintercroft where they have these wonderful DIY low poly count animal masks.  Designed and sold by Steve and Marianne Wintercroft in the United Kingdom, these things are a fantastic solution for people like myself that hate to do the whole costume and makeup thing. The litmus for these masks came from a last minute Halloween invite, no costume, and a background in carpentry. Steve Wintercroft used his skills to craft the first mask out of some cardboard boxes, which became a smash hit at the party. Realizing he was on to something, he created a template for the mask to share with others. Seeing how popular it was Steve and his wife branched out creating a whole series and offering them up on Etsy.

Soon and Igepa Recycle to Create a Fantasy World.

To promote their recycled paper line and the idea of recycling, Igepa Belux turned to the creative team at design firm Soon. Using old magazines, Soon transformed the pages into a bright colorful world of flowers, insects, and birds, giving the pages a second life.


The design team at Soon transformed magazines and print advertisements into three dimensional sculptures of flower arrangements, intricate insects, and voluminous greenery by cutting, folding, weaving, bending and gluing the materials and crafting them into a spectacular new world. The end result was a full color brochure, a behind the scenes video, and a series of prints, showing how the original materials had been transformed.

  
          

Iron Mountain “Back Up Tapes”.

What a nice ad for Iron Mountain from Sebas and Clim for agency Velocity. The script is absolutely hilarious while making a serious point about archiving your data properly. Sebas and Clim worked with paper artist and illustrator: Lobulo to create the elements that were animated for the piece infusing them with a sense of humor and whimsy that grounds the light hearted voice over.
