I have to admit with a little embarrassment that the first time I have seen paper art of this magnitude was this year, when I published an article called Pulp World: Wonderful Paper Sculptures and which featured paper art “illustrations” from various designers. They were pretty amazing but I found something even more impressive in this line of work.
The designer that I want to present to you today is called Yulia Brodskaya and was born in Moscow, Russia. Prior to moving to the United Kingdom in 2004 she was interested in diverse creative practices like Textile Painting, Origami and Collage to more traditional Fine Art practices.
Following an MA in Graphic Communication she continued to experiment and explore ways of bringing together all the things she likes the most: typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects. She has swiftly earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients all around the world.
The title refers to typography because of Yulia’s fondness over typographic paper illustrations but I included a few exceptions also, exceptions that are not type experiments, but instead complex paper artworks.
