MayScore Studios-designed Nanibird spotted in the wild
posted by James Kay
Japan-based American illustrator extraordinaire Josh McKible is the creator of the Nanibird Project, an ultra-cool papertoy project based on a simple bird design, that he creates a raft of different visual designs for, but also invites other creatives to contribute to. I have had the honour of contributing a design called the "Gamebird", based on a certain handheld gaming console of the past.
This month is the Breda Graphic Design Festival, in the Netherlands, which features a paper-art and papertoy exhibit called "Paper Cut". Josh has chosen a few of his own and contributors' favourite designs for a Nanibird compilation on display at this show, including, I am flattered to announce, the Gamebird design by yours truly.
The Score Studios "Gamebird" design can be spotted this month and next, in the wild, at the Graphic Design Festival or downloaded for your own pleasure through Josh's site, in a special package containing all the featured designs. Get it here and get it now! Photos of the Paper Cut exhibit can be seen here, on a Flickr feed by Marshall Alexander, who has also very kindly given me permission to use one of his photos in this news item, above.
