Paper Calligraphy

        Sabeena Karnik is a designer from Mumbi that combines typography and sculpture to create unique advertisements, posters, logos, book covers and more. Karnik creates 3-D paper sculptures out of paper passed on calligraphic typography. Her designs often use bold colors and energetic lines while the paper creates dramatic depth.


      On her online portfolio, you can see some of her process. She draws her designs on paper, then traces over the lines with thin strips of paper. I’m drawn to Karnik’s work because designers frequently stick to 2 dimensional designs when it comes to print pieces; however, this designer creates 3 dimensional designs that are used as 2 dimensional outputs.
