Greetings from FiftyThree! The team here is always on the lookout for eye-catching creations, and we're excited to share some of our recent favorites.
Say Yes To The Dress
The weather is finally warming up for those of us in the Northern hemisphere and while it may not be quite hot enough for dresses, that hasn't deterred the Paper community from remixing Aquarius' template of a dress. Over 500 people have drawn floral motifs, sketched geometric prints, and imported photos to create some truly unique dresses.
Using Paper To Innovate At Michael Kors
As part of the digital innovation team at Michael Kors, Nick Velazquez helps introduce new technology to the company at large. Paper allows Nick to keep track of and communicate his ideas, which range from meeting agenda items, to sketches of flows for UX and UI, to doodling just for fun.
