illu started in August 2013 and went from the classic silhouette papercut, to more complex stuff. The first papercuts were also featured on boredpanda a while ago.
The papercuts are still created as unique items but the shapes, the dimensions, the background and the combination of colours have changed. Of course you can still percieve the old illu style: simple and clean white frames and backgrounds.
The last updates on the project are the new frames that feature floating silhouettes or text and the layered color background. For this, the colored paper layers are carefully placed under the white papercut, filling the shapes.
Each piece is framed in a 13cm/13cm custom frame.
Recently, illu posted the also the gallery and shop on Etsy. Check it out!

Dallas Pets Alive! (DPA), a non-profit organization focused on promoting and providing the resources needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals, launches its first viral campaign. The #muttbombing initiative is part of the DPA communication platform created by Dieste, Inc.
The campaign features real dogs that are available for adoption “photobombing” publicly available Instagram photos of residents and celebrities from Dallas. “When it comes to finding homes for shelter pets, you have to really get creative. So we’re trying to show a different side of our pets through a fun and virtual interaction,” says DPA Executive Director Leslie Sans.
#muttbombing, developed by Dieste, is a fun but also emotional campaign to promote the adoption of companion animals. You can check all the #muttbombing pictures at www.muttbombing.com.
“There are two basic truths about Instagram: the selfie epidemic keeps growing and pictures of pets, especially dogs, are as popular as ever. If people won’t go to the shelters, why not bring shelters to them? Instagram has become a critical platform to reach the masses in a visually interesting way,”says Executive Creative Director Ciro Sarmiento, who led the creative team.
There is a fine line between copyright infringement and “safe” satire, and the parody law gods probably got a good laugh from this one.. Dumb Starbucks is a real coffee store that opened it’s doors in Los Angeles with a menu resembling an actual Starbucks shop just “dumbed” down a bit. It amazes me that such powerful brands can immediately become vulnerable under the same parody law that has kept SNL safe and thriving for so many years.
