Paper Type

While looking around I stumbled upon two artists working in a way I thought exciting. They create type using cut paper.

The first is Julene Harrison:

All her work is made from cut paper. The designs are single, whole sheets. She includes an impressive amount of detail in her precise cuts. Most of her work is in private commissions for her typographic pieces. She does commercial work as well and even manages to make portraits in the same manner.

And there is Yulia Brodskaya:

She was originally from Moscow where she studied art. After moving to the UK she became a graphic designer. She impressively combines her fine art hand skills with the typographic and design skills she learned in the UK.
The technique she uses for her work is called quilling, making  intricate designs with ribbons of paper.
