Pop-Up Wonders

The Chimei Museum in Taiwan shows a sequel to their temporary exhibition Origami Universe: an exhibition of art and innovation through folding, which was presented in 2016. The new exhibition Origami Universe II : Pop-Up Wonders can be seen from 1 October 2020 to 15 June 2021. I am very happy to be participating with four of my artistic pop-up paper sculptures.

Pop ups with architectural motifs

January 28, 2019

Many of my customers wish for a pop-up card that shows a specific building. There are many different ways to implement such a project. In my video, I explain seven different approaches to creating impressive pop-up cards and show many real-world examples.

A-Z in Kansas City

November 14, 2018

A visit to the Movable Book Society Conference 2018 – In September 2017, I received the message from the Movable Book Society that my pop-up design for the letter “C” was included in the ”A-Z – Marvels in Paper Engineering“ collection.This publication was to be presented to the public one year later at the Society’s 25th anniversary celebration. Now all the designers involved in this book were asked whether they would like to take part in the conference in Kansas City to personally sign the double pages. Since I had never attended such a conference before, I first called my colleague, pop-up designer and illustrator Maike Biederstädt, and asked her about this topic. She told me enthusiastically about the last MBS meeting in Boston in 2016 and said that I should definitely try to attend the next conference in Kansas City in September 2018. So my decision was made: I wanted to be there.

A new lettering for the fireworks card. It’s always nice to receive emails from fans – but this time I was really happy. A few days ago Kristijan Vulinovic sent me an additional lettering for the pop-up card “Fireworks”.
