Illustrator | Maker | Designer

Julianna Szabo is a Hungarian creator of intricate, hand-cut paper sets and illustrations based in London, United Kingdom. 
In her work she likes to elevate a sheet of paper to the 3rd dimension and often brings it to life through stop motion animation, using visual metaphors to draw you into a tactile world.
She also has a passion for typography, which is coming from her graphic design education at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. Her main source of inspiration is her love of nature, but moving to a different country and experiencing different culture from what she grew up in is also a great source of ideas.
