Let me introduce you to Tommy Perez's paper crafting. His papercraft catches my eye where I had to stop to have a closer look at it, won't you? The OCD in me had me smirk to his work, clean, sharp paper cut, and even tho it's just a picture but you can feel the paper texture through it.
We are following the work of French-based Zim & Zou and their stunning paper art project for Hermès. Yes, Hermès! What is even more intriguing is that this set made of paper has been commissioned as a 'digital background' for a conference. How freaking cool is that! Zim & Zou is a pretty well-known name of the industry and their paper art has a long history of incredible 'realizations' that we have the honor to feature before on abdz. Hope you will like this one.

You can't help but enjoy when artists/designers go out of their ways to create and work with their hands. There is this satisfaction and appreciation for their work when patience goes into play in paper craft. The results are just phenomenal. This is a design by the mighty folks from Adrian & Gidi for the FANTA Flavorland rebranding campaign where you can witness all shades of the orange colours into a beautiful display.
Let's start the week with this illustration & paper lettering project by People Too. You heard me right, Paper Lettering. A mixture of drawing and a lot of crafting to create such a stunning result. Imagine that the mighty folks over People Too, went from making every single pieces from the buildings, people, furniture, plants, cars and more. This is one of those projects where you just appreciate their patience and their passion for the art itself. Props to the team!
A new beginning. A second life. Not something you usually associate with an old tennis racket, (a wooden one, no less)! But that is just what multi-talented South African photographer, designer, VJ and embroiderer Danielle Clough has done - and quite beautifully. Clough takes ordinary found objects and literally transforms them into works of art through the decidedly old-school handicraft technique of embroidery design.
In my career, I had many many opportunities to create within a group that were in the same room like a workshop type of thing. Other situations where you are working with a team where they are scattered all over the World through different timezones is on the other hand making things harder though. It’s quite hard at times because we are not in the same room but things have changed with the mighty folks from InVision. Introducing Freehand, their latest from Craft to collaborate in real time fast and flexible at the same time.
In the latest installation of Craft from Invision LABS, they are again pushing the envelope by supercharging Craft’s capabilities by bringing designers Data.

I am really being a fan of what Craft by Invision LABS is bringing to the game that can really help designers boost up their productivity and efficiency into their work.

This is the future right here, both a passionate user of Sketch and Invision, allowing designers to prototype and see their designs live (real-time mirroring) on your devices for a better user experience.
Invision LABS has just released Craft-Styles, a tool (only available on Sketch) where you can create stunning, comprehensive style guide with just a few clicks. Craft has been a game changer in their recent release to a sustain increase of productivity among us designers. This is what I really do enjoy about this community, creating better tools together.
