Upon a fold is a must if you have an interest in anything to do with Paper engineering. This delightful blog is packed full of daily inspiration for paper enthusiasts. In addition there is also a shop where you can browse lots of fantastic paper finds.
Justine, a Graphic Designer is responsible for the blog and the gems of inspiration you will find.
" I've been collecting and making things with paper for as long as I can
remember. When I’m not working as a graphic designer, I’m still busy
cutting, folding and finding inspiration from other paper shapers,
artists and engineers. Whenever I come across a beautiful object made of
paper I wish I had a place to put it on show for all to see and enjoy.
So, ta-da, here it is… Upon a Fold".
Kickcan & Conkers is the work of fellow Yorkshire lass Deborah who now lives in the South of France with her family.
It is the place Deborah shares inspiring finds such as the latest french vintage finds and artists and designers including illustrator Kate Slater andher recent exhibition at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Certainly one to add to your daily reads and a great start to your day!
P.S Deborah will soon be launching an on-line shop so check back for updates!
Alice Melvin is a super talented illustrator based in Edinburgh whose work is inspired by her love of paper and print.
It's great to hear that the process of
screen-printing images by hand is still an integral part of her work which is evident in all the delightful products you can buy in Alice's on-line shop. Integral to a lot of her work is the making
process, and, she loves working on products with an interactive element
such as the ‘cut out and make’ cards and kits she has designed.
Animals, birds, pattern and text occur frequently in her work along with
the odd teapot as well. My favourite is "Sally visits the bakery" which is what my dream cake shop would look like.
Alice's illustrations are also very successfully transferred to children's books. Her first book An A to Z Treasure Huntwas published by Tate in
2007 and was an interactive alphabet book for children. Since then she
has worked with the Tate on a second children's title, Counting
Birds, and two children’s merchandise ranges.
