In the spirit of #SXSW taking over Austin, we decided to up the ante and invite a few of our favorite designer friends to help us create an instagram-worthy wall in our studio!
So, don't be shy! Stop by the studio before the end of the month to get a chance to check out our very first art installation in person, and snap a few pics. Feel free to tag #thepaperwallproject for a chance to be featured on our Instagram.
Here's a little more on the artists behind The Paper Wall Project (from left to right):
Chelsea Laine Francis (@ohhhchelsea)
Chelsea is Creative Director at The Paper + Craft Pantry, as well as owner of Chelsea Laine Francis photography + creative. She moved to Austin, TX two years ago, hit the ground running, and hasn't stopped since. She's an extrovert through and through and loves meeting new people at coffee shops, but she also loves working from home alone while watching cheesy sitcoms + Shondaland shows. When she isn't furiously responding to emails (she's an inbox zero kinda gal!) she's fulfilling her childhood dream of being a photographer + getting to meet people from all over the United States.
Denise Roberts (@withlovefromding)
One of the last "unicorns" left in Austin — she's a born and raised Austinite. Staging and Interiors is what she wants to do when she grows up (check out her awesome business/online store, Love Ding) and she tries to work toward and keep at her goals on a daily basis. She only writes on unlined paper and she drinks mimosas at night.
Pei Sim (@pspapershoppe)
In addition to being the founder and owner of The Paper + Craft Pantry, Pei is a self-declared paper hoarder and stationery aficionado since '94. Pei has always had a bit of a paper problem. She still uses a paper planner and usually has about 7 notebooks at any given time within arms reach. Besides paper, Pei is also really passionate about french fries.
Rachel Giberson (@rachelfromaustin)
A big thing of all things creative, she believes that making things is good for the soul. She spends most of her time adventuring with her two rad little boys and cool husband, but also finds time to build custom art installations. She loves doo-wop music and Alfred Hitchcock — and realizes that this makes her sound like a grandma.
