More About This Book

Overview

Paper is arguably the most influential material in human civilization. In our digital age, paper has become less important as a medium for the immediate transmission of information. As this shift occurred, designers and artists increasingly discovered the creative possibilities of paper's endurance. Today, designing with paper continues to be a trend. In the last three years, a broad range of creative disciplines including scenography, fashion design, and advertising have discovered the versatility of this basic material. These new areas have contributed fresh ideas and perfected existing techniques. The areas of application and forms of expression for working with paper have now reached an unforeseen breadth and level of quality. With an unparalleled collection of new and groundbreaking projects, Papercraft 2 presents current developments in contemporary design with paper and cardboard. The book documents how techniques such as cutting, folding, gluing, and collage help designers craft innovative communication design, products, and artwork from these materials that reach new creative heights. Recent examples include illustration, sculpture, and 3D graphic design as well as complex spatial installations, fashion, and objets d'art. Clearly advancing the handicraft used in earlier pieces, these are setting prevailing trends and inspiring the future evolution of work with paper in ever more creative disciplines. Its more than 250 pages and additional bonus video material make Papercraft 2 a comprehensive documentation of the creative potential that can be realized with the traits of what was once our primary material for communicating information.
