Have you ever wondered what you would do if you simply got up and left your current job? Aurelie Cerise did just that. The Paris-based pharmacist couldn’t imagine that one day she would become a set and paper designer. But now, she creates captivating 3D artworks from paper full time, proving that sometimes leaving the corporate world and chasing your dream isn’t a bad idea.
Cerise started her journey as a paper designer by cutting paper as a way to increase calmness and focus. Today, she is a popular designer with a large Instagram following and has so far collaborated with many renowned brands, including Kenzo, L’Oreal, Dior, Microsoft, Apple, Citroen, and Nissan.
Cerise’s paper artworks can take you back to your childhood years when you carelessly played with origami. Her style colorful and vibrant, but also – minimalistic.
