With over a decade of experience working as a graphic designer in leading branding agencies around the world, London based artist Judy Robinson decided to create something purely for the love of creating. With her passion for papercraft and a love of sophisticated minimalist design Paper Tango was born. Little did she know that her pop-up creations made in her small bedroom in North London would, through the encouragement of family and friends, grow into an international creative business. These kirigami pop-up cards are of landmarks from New York, Paris and London, which have been intricately laser cut and individually hand folded and trimmed. The card is A4 size and made from premium Italian paper and UK paper stocks. Be sure to check out the entire collection on Paper Tango.

In an every day scenario of receiving mail, it can become fairly common to automatically discard an envelope, and in most cases only seek to review the contents within. For Stephen Sollins this, however, would not be the case. He has taken paper envelopes that would otherwise be stacked high at trash sites and has instead recycled and transformed them into lovely traditional quilts that use geometric forms as patterns.
With a fascination for machines, especially those with wheels, similar to the ones found in Clockwork Love Jewelry, Bradley N. Litwin discovered his passion for the function surrounding mechanical design. He is inspired not only by the beauty of the geometric relationships of each moving part, but also in how they are assembled and juxtaposed, as predicated by their function within a system, and the evolution of mechanical design.
From that passion he has developed MechaniCards®, which are miniature, hand-operated, kinetic sculptures, designed and produced in limited edition. This piece, Steampunk Valentine, is the second MechaniCard® design introduced in 2013. It is a combination of Victorian mechanophilia and futuristic fantasy, in a timeless and plaintive pursuit of romantic bliss.
