Julie Rousseau's Animal Instinct
Julie Rousseau's collection of "Paper Beasts" is a series of folded animal masks and stand alone figures. The Belgian graphic designer wanted to explore the use of cardboard and artisanal craftsmanship in a way where she can "think with her hands." The method of folding the masks into shape takes time, precision and most likely a lot of paper cuts. The impeccable artistry and attention to the functionality of the cardboard to mould it into something as intricate as these masks is no easy feat, and we couldn't be more excited that Rousseau was the one to rise to the challenge.
