SXSW Film Festival in Paper

When I see artwork cut out of paper like this, it makes me realize how impatient I really am. Creating something like this would take a while to create on a computer, let alone cutting out each of those patterns and not getting glue everywhere. But there is more to appreciate than just the process.

This is the official poster for 2014's SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX. The creatives who made this brilliant piece were the creative duo that make up Zim & Zou. Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann teamed up together to form their France-based studio to do everything from paper sculptures, to design, to illustration.

Having now lived in Austin for almost a year, I can appreciate all the fun little details that make this very Austin. The intricate little bat, the Texas State Capitol building, and the miniature taco truck, all make this feel so Austin. Such incredible craftsmanship and an overall fun design.
