State of the Art is our not-so-regular series where we highlight the work of those in our industry who knock our socks off.  We are proud to be part of such a vibrant, creative industry and strive to create work as excellent as that which we highlight here.

Quilling is one of the coolest paper treatments out there.  If you’ve been around the corner of the internet where all the design kids hang out, it’s likely you’ve seen some amazing examples of quilling lately.  Here are a few of my absolute favorite:

Rachel Hanson‘s beautiful menu, inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night, is simple and elegant.  I’d love to see more from her.

Can you believe “Everything is Awesome” is Erin‘s first attempt at quilling?  Make sure to subscribe to her blog to see what’s next!

Check out these beautiful posts from the excellent blog All Things Paper by Ann Martin.  This quilled “K” (by Suzana Ilic) and antique keyring are gorgeous and the Quaker Marriage Certificate is absolutely stunning!

Skull a Day even got in on the quilling action.  Noah created this quilled skull for his year-long celebration of skulls.

Quilling even makes its way onto cakes!  Although the website is called cake wrecks, their Sunday posts are focused on the beautiful work being done in the cake world, including this piece from Vanilla Pastry Studio.

Practically without a doubt, there is no modern quiller as innovative, excellent, and well known as Yulia Brodskaya.  Every major design blog has featured her beautiful work.  The Stern Grove poster was featured on For Print Only, while the Starbucks advertisement was featured in a post by the incomparable Abduzeedo.  Design Fetish provided the infographic poster.

If you’ve been inspired to do some quilling of your own, here‘s a great tutorial from Reese Dixon on creating a (relatively) simple, but impressive snowflake.

    Matthew, I agree that quilling is cool and think it’s getting cooler all the time as more people in the design world are exposed to it and then bring new ideas to the art. Thanks for featuring my Ring of Keys and Quaker Marriage Certificate.

      Ann, thanks for commenting!

      I think the beautiful forms and shapes quilling produces are a goldmine for the modern designer.

      The patience necessary to execute these works is something we should all learn, too!

    Thanks for the advice on credit repair on this excellent site. Some tips i would tell people should be to give up the particular mentality that they may buy currently and shell out later. Being a society many of us tend to try this for many issues. This includes vacation trips, furniture, along with items we wish. However, you’ll want to separate your current wants out of the needs. If you are working to boost your credit score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you’ll be able to shop online to save cash or you can look at second hand merchants instead of high-priced department stores pertaining to clothing.
