SelfPortraitHello paper nerds!
I’m Benja – welcome to my site.

I’m a self-taught Paper Engineer living and working in Sydney, Australia

Paper is my passion…
I love the contradictions:
strong/delicate _ complex/simple

Through my business, Paperform, I have been dedicated to engineering high-end pop-up books and crisp paper constructions professionally for 6 years now spanning a variety of applications: fine art, advertising, magazine illustration, fashion and packaging.

Paper is such a humble medium to work with. It inspires and challenges me every time I sit down at my cutting mat.

I strive for creativity and perfection in every project I undertake.

I hope you enjoy my work.

I’m always uploading new work and cataloguing older creations and images, so check back frequently.

You can see more of my paper imagery on my Flickr page HERE.

I have a profile on the Behance Network HERE, an online portfolio site that showcases some of the most talented designers and artists around the world.

Twitter is where I post my favourite web-based paper discoveries and other mutterings.
