Bianca Chang - Sculptured Typography

If you love paper and happen to be in Sydney, Australia next week, you're in luck! The A4 Paper Festival, a series of installations, workshops and lectures presented by the The Paper Convention Collective, will be held at The Paper Mill and runs May 31st through June 5th.


Designer and paper artist, Bianca Chang, is a workshop leader. I would so enjoy learning to create one of the incredibly precise typography sculptures that are her hallmark. Each letter is composed of a stack of paper sheets... 180 make up the perfect O you see above, for example. Designed for the May issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, Bianca cut each page from 80 gsm, 100% post consumer waste recycled paper, just a hair different in size than the one before it, which caused the graceful spiralling and shadow effect. And yes, in case you need to brace yourself (as I would), math calculations are involved.

Even if you can't be in Sydney, you don't have to miss out entirely - click here for a short video on Behance that shows Bianca at work. She's also in the process of creating a brand new, "making of" video, so be on the lookout for that on her website.

Edited to add: Bianca's new "making of' video can be seen here.
