The Paper Strikes Back, Paper Craft Millennium Falcon by Oupas Design

The Paper Strikes Back, Paper Craft Millennium Falcon by Oupas Design

To all of you Star Wars fans, myself included, I love seeing all of the wonderful paper art that has been created around the classic George Lucas movie. Oupas Design, based in the heart of the city of Porto, Portugal, has done just that for the company Blip, that has a team that goes by the name “Millennium Falcon”.

The graphic design studio and team of four: Cidália, Joana, Sofia and Tobias (the cat), whose work is centered on illustration and set design, with their ultimate medium of choice being paper and cardboard and they build on a varied scaled of tiny pieces for stage and event designs, to a larger than life sized cardboard cities. Blip had a desire to transform their work station by adding a replica of the spaceship from Star Wars, but with their team color: green. Oupas ultimately made their dream come true by constructing a paper craft spaceship measuring 1,20 meter wide.
