Hattie Newman has earned an international reputation for her inimitable creations in the field of set design and papercraft. Found in advertisements, animations, physical spaces and books, her colourful work is loved by children, publishers and photographers alike. Hattie has directed a number of playful short films and animations, in which her wonderful paper sculptures magically come to life – most recently for a Christmas TV Commercial for the fashion brand, Lacoste.
Although based at her East London studio, projects regularly call Hattie away to work in New York, Paris, Valencia, Milan and other places far from her original home of Devon, England. Her clients include Selfridges, TFL, NSPCC, The Guardian, Vogue, Canon and John Lewis.
As well as practicing commercially, Hattie is also active in design education, giving frequent talks and workshops at design festivals, schools and universities. Exhibitions showcasing Hattie’s work include Pick Me Up (Somerset House, London), The Paper Convention (Sydney) and The Paper Cut Festival (Amsterdam).
