Owen Gildersleeve is a designer, papercraft illustrator and set maker. His illustrations often play with light and shadow, frequently combining multiple layered paper-cuts with graphical forms and hand-rendered typography. He also enjoys collaborating with photographers, animators and stylists to help bring his ideas to life. Owen’s playful, handcrafted creations won him a prestigious ADC Young Guns 9 award in 2011, and have seen him produce illustrations and designs for an array of international clients. His work has been exhibited in London, New York, and Tokyo. A University of Brighton graduate, he is now based in London where he works from a shared studio.
