Paper engineering at MOO HQ

8th May 2012 by Dan H

You may have noticed from our Facebook galleries that we’ve been playing with paper a lot recently here at MOO HQ. It started with a couple of workshops run by Helen Friel, introducing us to paper engineering, and ended with the perfect brief for our design team to put their newly learnt skills to good use!

The first workshop focused on the technical side of things – folding paper and making pop up cards, while the second workshop turned our attention to the more creative elements of paper engineering – cutting paper and building layered dioramas.

Here’s some of the MOO Crew getting to grips with the new skills in the workshops:

Paper workshops are great, it shows there’s more to paper than  printing out pictures of cats!

The perfect opportunity to put these skills to good use turned up when our design team were tasked with a new project – Felix and Rob disappeared for a couple of days and then reappeared with a magnificent stage setup made from paper:

And you know what, sometimes, it’s just nice to play with knives at work!
