* PAPER GRAPHIC IMAGERY, QUILLING TECHNIQUE.
Illustration, Graphic Design and Craft meet in Yulia Brodskaya’s projects, a young Russian designer with talent in transforming ideas to interesting concepts. Her designs are much more than handicraft; they are works of art. The most remarkable thing though is that Yulia manages to create most of her astonishing objects by using just paper. She is continuously exploring new ways of expression mixing what she loves most: Typography, Paper and Textile painting.
Madebyjulene is the paper-cut art of British designer and illustrator Julene Harrison.
