Linda Nakanishi is a graphic/web designer, a part time web design teacher at Humber College in Toronto, Canada, and a lifelong crafter. She recently decided to use the paper ads in old issues of HOW for her Upcycle Collage Project.
I enjoy reading this magazine and often keep the issues for references.
And one thing I noticed in every issue were these great paper company
ads showcasing some great paper finishes, laser cutting and vivid
images. But at the end of the day they were still advertising, so I
thought since they are not an integral part of being a reference, I
thought I’d give the paper ads a new life in my collage project. My
rule is to only use the paper ads, seeing as they are the only ads that
are two sided and do not have articles on the backside.
