Alicja Colon, paper illustrator and owner of Thrice Studio, will share how curiosity plays a central role in the development of her creative career, using her story and portfolio as an example. This talk expands on a central theme Alicja will share at her DSVC talk happening a day prior. Alicja will cover:

  • How she became a paper illustrator
  • How strategy informs where paper illustration can live and thrive
  • What does the typical paper illustration process look like

all while providing tidbits of wisdom gathered over her 15-year creative career.

About the Speaker:
After completing her degree in graphic design, Alicja promptly gave up artboards for apertures when she discovered photography. After a 10-year stint as a photographer, Alicja discovered the flexibility of paper imagery and fell in love. Now there's a studio!

About Thrice Studio:
We collaborate with creative agencies and in-house departments to craft strategic yet fun still-life images. Thrice Studio is a paper lovin' still-life centric studio crafting imagery for tech, product companies, and other overachievers.
