Jotopia, Iggesund, Refeka and Filigran-Laser joined forces to build a tricky pop-up relaunch of the Jobot by Jotopia | Visual Noise, which travels around the world since 2004. The pop-up had been exhibited at this year’s Creative Paper Conference in Munich and is available with the current edition of Germany’s graphic design magazine NOVUM (12|12).

PRESS INFORMATION BY IGGESUND
“In partnership with novum magazine, the paperboard producer Iggesund is showing the creative potential inherent in paperboard as a working material. At the Creative Paper Conference, the producer will present for the first time eight different robot models designed by famous German designers especially for the premium paperboard Invercote. ( … ) The designers were given free rein and the results are correspondingly diverse. The spectrum ranges from the powerful android by the designer ‘Jotopia’ to the classic humanoid model by Maikranz Design.” – Read the full press info here.

DOWNLOAD THE CONSTRUCTION KIT AT DOWNLOADS.JOTOPIA.DE
In case you haven’t been fast enough to catch one of the pop ups you are able to download a diecut sheet of the model here. Build you own paper model and take pictures of it in front of famous landmarks or from different countries and get published in the online gallery.

AUSTRALIAN SCRAPBOOK
AND PREPARATIONS FOR SOUTH OF AMERICA

Just rediscovered our Australian scrapbook on the hard disk. See our travel-pictures here! Now we’re preparing for our next trip to Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos islands this summer: so we had been to the doc today to get heaps of immunizations: rapid animals are invited to come a step closer now. As real turtle fans we are really saddened about the loss of Lonesome George and that we won’t be able to greet him anymore!

THE MAKING OF
THE ENJOY WITH SALT & VINEGAR STICKER
Bookmark and Share

Chicken Or BeefBefore doing any digital work we love drawing with real color on real paper on our travels! This makes the digital process much easier and pretty faster later on. Made this sketch at the beach of Magnetic Island/Australia being fascinated (shocked?) by deadly boxjellyfish on the one hand and by eating salt and vinegar potato chips on the other. Get this sticker twice as part of our Jotopia Stickerpack at KatRock’s superstore ChickenOrBeef.de!
