Julia Ibbini was born in the United Kingdom but has spent most of her life in the United Arab Emirates. The Jordanian-British designer and visual artist studied at Leeds College of Art and Design graduating in 2002. She creates complex digital designs which are then cut in numerous layers out of various materials using laser machines. In an article on Delusional Art Competition she says this about her work:
“It’s a combination of design, craft and code underpinned by an almost maniacal obsession with pattern. The patterns I work with are (quite wide ranging) everything from electronic music, to ancient Islamic design, to topographical maps.”
More of her work can be viewed on her website and on Instagram.

Sabeena Karnik is an artist and graphic designer living in Mumbai, India. She is internationally known for her quilled illustrations and typography. She has mastered the art of quilling, rolling paper into coils, pinching them into shapes and gluing them to create decorative designs. On Verve Magazine she say this about her art:
“I am not aware of anyone else doing it as a full-time profession in India. When you think of creating with paper, it’s always considered to be for gifts. Quilling is something that you learn in a hobby class; no one really thought of taking it to the next level. I wanted to break that barrier.”
More of her work can be seen on Behance, Facebook and Instagram. She has a small shop here on Big Cartel.
