Kamiwaza Paper Craft Awards

A celebration of paper and it's craftsmanship. Read more.

Kamiwaza Paper Craft Awards

The Kamiwaza Paper Craft Awards are a Japanese craft paper award presented by a paper company, for amateurs and professional designers.

The identity and awards are in themselves designed by a favourite studio of mine, Tokyo-based 6D are also precisely a practice what the Kamiwaza Paper Craft Awares about - paper and it's craftsmaship. 

 

From the elegant, delicate posters which celebrates an ancient Japanese art, ‘incrustation’ in which contrasting materials are applied as an inlay to help show what the Kamiwaza Paper Craft Awards are all about.Three types of paper were inlaid to the base paper, with beautiful earthy pastel toned hands working together to create the large scale lettering.

This brings to focus the technique and expertise required to produce such beautiful work, which is what makes the posters so successful, as it’s a 'celebration of the process of working with paper’ in itself. Attracting entries form amateurs to professionals alike to these Awards, run by a Japanese paper company.
 

The cutting, gluing and re-arranging of the Kanji characters by these pair of hands, give way to a flexible system that can spell out various phrases and words using the customised font.

This form language informs the different built forms for each of the different categories of winners, which are ultimately a stacked trophy - a house of cards.

As a designer who works in 3D and the built form, it's great to see something so beautifully executed far away from the usual materials of signage and environmental graphics to something so simple, as paper.

Insights
Suspended paper installations

As designers, we are constantly on the lookout for innovative ways to use paper. The work of artist Angela Glajcar is one that caught our eye, challenging traditional use of the 2D medium by creating beautiful installation pieces.

Formerly, Glajcar's works utilised steel and wood. More recently, her sculptures are built from a series of strung white paper sheets, with textured rips through the centre that create tunnel-like channels resembling caves or mountains.

Airy and light in form, the use of illumination and space generates voluminous works. 

Varying in position, the paper sculptures are either suspended from ceilings or protrude from walls, creating elegant captivating designs.

Glajcar's impressive works have been exhibited all over the world. Have a look at one of her most astonishing here.

Placemaking in the wild

Typically, placemaking is intended to endure for a significant amount of time to give a place its identity and personality. Artist Simon Beck and his transient large-scale artworks manages to reinvent a new sense of placemaking, in the natural environment. Read more.

Insights
Placemaking in the wild

Using locations such as the Swiss Alps and sandy beaches in New Zealand, Beck creates massive geometric artworks using his footprints by trudging across sand or through snow. 

Each site usually stretches for hundreds of metres and each site-specific piece is pre-planned using a computer and carefully mapped out on-site. Beck then can spend entire days painstakingly trampling out the intricate patterns. Well that's one way of keeping fit whilst working! 

Several years worth of his work can be appreciated on Facebook

Contemporary logos meet historical art

As innovative designers we often seek inspiration from contemporary design, historical art and everything in between.  

When Filipino graphic artist, Eisen Bernard, removed the 500 years of everything in between with his unique juxtapositions, we got reminded of how much design and art have evolved over time. 

Here at THERE, we often look beyond the realms of design to help us ideate and innovate. Essentially taking a step back or moving laterally in order to leap forward.

 

Apple meets The Son of Man by René Magritte


NASA meets The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

 

Ferrari meets Napoleon Crossing the Alps by Jacques-Louis David

 

Air Jordan meets Death of Ajax by Henri Auguste Calixte César Serrur

Old is New Again

A new trend in environmental graphics that has its roots firmly planted in the past. Read more.

Insights
Old is New Again

The old saying that fashion is cyclical seems to be ringing true recently with environmental graphics, as old styles of signage, graphics and typography are being reinvented for a modern audience.

Whilst it is said that 50 years is required for a fashionable look to come back in style,
some recent design projects go back a lot further.

Stained glass windows make a reappearance in this first project by Dutch-based illustrator Stefan Glerum. Two new super-scale designs that depict the history of the building's area adorn a residential project in Amsterdam and combine a centuries-old glazing technique with a graphic style reminiscent of the Art Deco or Bauhaus movements.

On a smaller scale, we've also started to see signage styles replicate the techniques of eras gone by.

This floor-marker signage seen at Sightglass Coffee in San Francisco uses mosaics to provide a fun twist on typography. Taken by @mihailonaca via @canva

Designed by A friend of Mine, the new euro-style dessert restaurant in South Melbourne features a custom-mosaic wall signage. The crafted typography with intricate patterns in a bold and geometric typeface gives a sense of modernity whilst drawing on the traditional techiniques of tiling and gives this boutique a sense of place.

And closer to home, Sydney-based Lynes & Co are doing some beautifully hand-crafted work with traditional signwriting techniques.
