I'm a graphic designer, paper artist and urban sketcher with a passion for movies, videogames, bright plastic toys, retro design and pop-culture in general. I create paper models under my artist name Marshall Alexander. I have done commercial work for the toy industry, promotional purposes, books, magazines and more. My work has been featured in several gallery shows around the world and I've created paper installations at a couple of shows as well.
Something a bit different. For my commercial paper projects we needed a box to transport my papertoys to meetings and possible clients. So I created a handmade custom cardboard box that can store/display my toys, flat templates and other material.
I already posted a related video last week, but now Papertoys.nl is officially online. As I stated before we now offer papertoy design at the company I work for, and we created a website especially for that. We are aiming for the Dutch market initially, but we very much welcome international clients as well.
As an added bonus, we’ve made the example papertoy, which is used on the site, available for download too. So head over to Papertoys.nl and get him.
I create my commercial paper projects at the graphic design studio where I work, which includes the benefit of my collegues helping me out when I need to build some sample toys for prospective clients.
