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 Visit to Sweden

Each year, the paper mill Iggesund organizes the event “The Iggesund Design Experience” – and this year I had the pleasure to join in. Along with about 25 other guests from around the world, I spent four wonderful days (from 22nd to 25th of August 2016) in South Norrland in Sweden. Since all participants are professionally connected to paperboard, e.g. as packaging designers, paper engineers or artists, we all got along well from the very beginning. It’s great to be together with like-minded people and to talk about our favorite subject: paper.
