Incredibly Intricate 3D Paper Infographics by Pattern Matters

May 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I know nothing about Pattern Matters and currently have an email into them to find out more info. From the look of their recently updated portfolio they are making some genuinely beautiful paper and typographic products from calendars to the stunning 3D posters you see here. Looking at the process photos the attention to detail exhibited here is simply mind-blowing.

Update: This is the work of Lim Siang Ching, a graphic design student in Singapore who is graduating from LASALLE College of the Arts. These are her degree projects.

Aakash Nihalani

May 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Aakash Nihalani uses brightly colored tape to create isometric rectangles and squares in locations around New York, and has recently started a series where he interacts with these geometric shapes to great effect. Via his web site:

For however briefly, I am trying to offer people a chance to step into a different New York than they are used to seeing, and in turn, momentarily escape from routine schedules and lives. We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully, as a world dominated by the interplay of very basic color and shape. I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality.

See more of his recent work here. (via hyperallergic)

Christopher Jobson

St. Paul-based illustrator Colin Johnson creates these insanely intricate paper works that he dubs “hyper-collages”. Shown above is his latest piece, Effloresce, for which he also photographed a nice step-by-step series. See much more of his work on Flickr.
