Stan Wars

These are my paper toys based in obsessive super fans who troll internet forums battling it out to find out who is best. Really I didn't give them enough unique characteristics (apart from Gaga toy) they look too similar to the actual celebrities. Due to time restraints I had to take ideas and a fantastic suggestion by my tutor out. However I intend to bring the toys into better context of battling for each fan's celebrities honor I will be able to portray them with speech bubbles and personalities. I found this project very difficult with my bad hands specially on finicky details which was a shame but I'm quite happy overall with them.

Paper toys

For our latest brief we have been given a task to create a set of paper toys. Just looking into google you'll find a ton of paper toys. It's more popular than I thought and the designs can range from very complex to extremely simple.

Designing toys with nets sounds terrifying but really there is a ton of tutorials online and it's not an awful lot harder than when we had to design the tactile boxes.

This is the strangest thing I've seen in a while!

This is an obscure song from 1998 that Kylie Minogue was featured in. It is a song literally about a typeface! Take time to listen.
