For the second installment of our Ten Questions series, we chatted to the Russian born paper illustrator Yulia Brodskaya. Her intricate, sculptural creations have gained the attention of clients such as Hermès, Cadbury, Orange, The Guardian and The New York Times amongst others. Instantly recognisable, her work brings together a combination of the things she loves; typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects.
