I don’t know what’s in the water over in London, but the city boasts some pretty serious set design talent. A recent favorite is Hattie Newman, who works primarily with the cut-paper aesthetic.
Hattie’s lovingly-crafted paper objects can be found in fashion stories, alongside articles, in window displays, and functioning as seasonal installations.
She nails the cheerful, colorful look that many cut-paper illustrators share, but Hattie is unique in that some of her 3-D objects feel quite moody and sophisticated.
See more of Hattie’s work, including full versions of projects shown above, on her portfolio. And if you’re a glutton for process shots, check out Hattie’s Tumblr.
