Handcrafted Floral Typography Created Entirely Out of Paper

Lavanya Naidoo paper typography

Cre­at­ing typog­ra­phy, in gen­er­al, is chal­leng­ing, but it’s even more so when done by hand. Lavanya Naidoo has excelled at pro­duc­ing clean, bold text, and she did it entire­ly out of paper. Her beau­ti­ful piece A Thorn in My Side fea­tures black block type paired with sculpt­ed and quilled flo­rals. The visu­al heav­i­ness of the white petals—that look incred­i­bly realistic—offsets the pink lines to cre­ate bal­ance that excites the eye. This piece is even bet­ter when viewed from the side because you see all of the great three dimen­sion­al details.
