Paper planes…and rockets…and robots…

You may have seen the latest issue of GOOD, focusing on the GOOD 100 (or so), the people, ideas and projects making our world better. And making a world is exactly what we did at GOOD’s offices for a few weeks, crafting an entire universe from construction paper, under the tutelage of Brian Rea, Casey Caplowe, Atley Kasky and Will Etling.

GOOD 100

My favorite contribution was a pink “power” pantsuit for Hillary Clinton, which was inspired by this amazing Glamour article about her rainbow of suits. It is a lovely shade of coral, which I paired with a simple grey knit top, and even has chunky wooden buttons. You can also see the pantsuit from another angle on the article page.

I also made a cow, which makes a cameo—cowmeo?—on the cover, celebrating New Diets for Cows (don’t worry, the article explains it).

And, in kind of an interesting before-and-after, I made this longhorn skull on a desertscape for the Center for Land Use Interpretation (one of my favorite places in LA).

This is really what the table looked like as we worked on our creations. There are more photos of us cutting, folding and gluing (including one very intense look on my face as I fashioned cow hooves). They’ve assembled all the GOOD 100 in an amazing grid of paper-ness, where you can browse the different offerings.

Here’s a peek of the (much more sophisticated) work by Keith (including a razor blade that is about a foot long). Thanks to GOOD for bringing out the cut-paper talent in all of us. And thanks to Design Related for the great post!
