Studio 2 & 3

Perhaps you remember the striking quilled designs of Jitesh Patel. He and 3D designer Alex Hammond have launched Studio 2 & 3, a creative partnership in which they combine "delicate 2D illustration with the power and flexibility of digital 3D."

I love the way their modern designs are helping to firmly plant quilling as an art form of the 21st century. Some examples of their collaboration:
Burnett's-Vodka-Studio-2-&-3
A pitch for a Burnett’s Vodkas & Gin campaign highlights the company's various vodka flavorings.
explore-magazine
An Explore magazine cover Studio 2 & 3 designed for Orange (France Telecom). It debuts the first smartphone with a dedicated Facebook button.

This floral project, Daisy, was an experiment with bright colors and the combination of text and images. Although I love the colors and floral design, I have to say the flowers overpower the lettering - it's still gorgeous though.

In this piece, called Light, the blue outlined letters definitely pop from the sweeping white scrolls.

Watching Jitesh and Alex create a design would be fascinating. I'm curious as to how much of the designs are first quilled by hand, but whether done traditionally or digitally, it's a painstaking process with beautiful results.

Inspiring indeed! It's fascinating to see this new concept of 'papergraphics' take root in the world of commercial art.
