Paper Graphics: Illustrations and Typography

Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya has been influencing the world of design with her unique art… and it’s created using just thin strips of paper. Using a technique called quilling, she folds and curls her colorful medium into intricate illustrations, scroll work and typography. Nothing seems beyond her abilities: detailed portraits of wrinkled elders, pop-art like beach scenes, and precise letters packed with swirls of color.


Her works are now being featured in advertisements world-wide. From work with Ford, to Cadbury and Nokia, her reach seems almost as unlimited as her ability to come up with new concepts which merge her two loves:

“Typography is my second love, after paper and I’m really happy that I’ve found a way of combining the two. Having said that, I don’t want to exclude non-typobased designs, I’d like to work on different projects.”
