I was very honoured to be asked by TalkPR to create 13 unique kirigami trophies for the 'P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards 2013'. The annual award ceremony celebrates the very best in editorial and design for journalism within the business sector. Below is a snap of Jo Whiley and Aimee Goldsmith, Head of Communications at P&G presenting a trophy to freelance journalist, Alice Du Parcq during a lovely cocktail party in London.

THE MAKING OF SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE II KIRIGAMI VIRAL

Nearly 1.7 million people on YouTube have watch the Samsung Galaxy Note II viral in which I created 4 /6 pieces of kirigami. I though that I'd share a little bit of the process behind the creation of the work. In this post are some behind the scenes photos of the shoot and scans of the original concept drawings.

The concept was pitched by Ed Robinson, the Executive Creative Director at The Viral Factory who have created several other successful virals for Samsung Mobile US. For me to create the 4 pieces it was about 3 weeks of planning and cutting during which I was in constant communication with Simon (the producer) and Jake (the director). The whole team at The Viral Factory were a joy to work with. The video was shot was over 2 days. I attended the first day to advise on handling of the pieces and ensuring they were correctly displayed and looked after during the filming.

The pieces I created are; Travelling Home for Christmas, The Parade, The Theatre and The Rockefeller Ice Rink.

So overwhelmed to see Horrorgami on the BBC News Magazine section this morning. I doubt any Blue Peter presenters will be worried about their jobs yet. Watch it here If you want to have a go at making the Zombie Mini-Horrorgami featured in the clip then you can download the template right after the jump. I'll retweet any images of models you've made. Modifications are welcome!

Happy Hallowe'en
