Beneath the surface lies a mesmerizing world, hidden from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives – the underwater world. It’s a place where colors dance in harmony, textures weave tales of resilience, and unique life forms paint an awe-inspiring canvas. In the world of design, where inspiration is the lifeblood of creativity, the depths of the ocean offer an untapped wellspring waiting to be explored. Let’s dive into the depths, discovering how the underwater world, with its vibrant hues, intricate textures, and extraordinary life forms, serves as an unparalleled muse for designers seeking to breathe fresh life into their creative endeavors.
In our longest-running series Inspiration + Paper we explore themes and topics that serve as springboards of inspiration in the world of design papers. Beyond its seemingly uncomplicated nature, paper possesses a remarkable versatility that is often overlooked. Whether as a single sheet or part of a collection, paper has the capacity to spark emotions, evoke memories, convey values, and articulate thoughts. Its influence on the viewer or holder, both on a conscious and subconscious level, is profound, rendering it an incredibly potent and integral component in any project or concept that utilizes paper.
Finding inspiration in the magical world beyond the surface, I’ve created six new paper palettes with beautifully textured papers from the Design Papers Collection by Europapier – and partnered them with equally stunning photographs.
Inspired by the unique beauty and mesmerizing colorways of the fragile world under the surface, I’ve selected some of my favorite photographs from the underwater world and matched them with beautiful design papers by Europapier.
