Gail Armstrong has been working on something slightly different lately for 02 magazine. Used on the July issue cover, Gail had to build a "set" in which a Nokia phone would sit. She says "The random geometric panels and the shadows they cast, had to work within the cover layout and not detract from any of the cover text. A challenge for my mathematical skills, but a very pleasing result." Gail made the paper sculpture from 2 different finishes of paper: a brushed steel paper in keeping with the finish of the phone, and a pearlised white paper, to keep the piece looking cool and clinical, but with a little hint of sparkle in the texture.
