Zim and Zou have been peppered throughout the site with their numerous projects that are all innovative, unique and extremely colorful. These projects range from a paper tape cover for your usb to a bright blue burger on the cover of a magazine.
The latest installment from the talented duo Zim and Zou, is the cover for Icon Magazine’s Issue 104: The Future of Food. The issue itself is about what food will be like in the future with their reflection being on 3D food printer technology. They have even supplied an animated gif! Stack it up, stack it up!
Zim and Zou are by far one of my many favorite paper artists, stretching the boundaries of paper art to produce some remarkable creations. We have written posts about them several times in the past and they never cease to amaze us.
With this particular piece they tell a story surrounding Washington, DC suburbs, where four metro stations will open. The more familiar car driven area will now suddenly have public transit which will hopefully make it feel more like a city — adding more pedestrian walkways, apartments, grocery stores… making it more of a place that people will actually want to live than just work.
The french duo Zim and Zou strikes again with their new personal project called “Back to Basics” where they crafted a lot of vintage electronics like a Nintendo Gameboy, a Leica and a Polaroid Camera, a Sony Walkman, Cassettes and many more… the amount of detail they put into each paper craft is astounding and shows their true passion for the craft. The project took about a year to be born and is still in progress.
Zim and Zou is a french graphic design studio comprised of Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann based in Nancy (France). Since Christmas is just around the corner this couldn’t be a better time to showcase their latest piece — a holiday greeting card entitled Paper Forest created in collaboration with Seeonee for Grant Thornton.
