Trialanderror have taken part in the Do It in a Dress campaign which raises funds to provide a scholarship to a girl in Sierra Leone. The studio helped out by creating a paper school dress which was worn by One Girl co-founder Chantelle. The paper comes from Kikki K – and this magnificent creation is help together by tape and staples.

CRANE FEST @ Metta Scents, Greville St
A few months ago we did a paper installation for Metta Scents and we were recently invited back to support Crane Fest which aims to fold 1000 origami cranes and raise $1000 or charity.
Donations will go to the Japanese Tsunami Recovery, Horn of Africa Drought Relief and Prahran Mission. Crane Fest will be on until the end of September - Head over to Metta Scents and show your support!
T&E PAPER WORKSHOP
The crafty people at KUK invited us to host a paper work shop on their Makers Day at the Abbotsford Convent. We showed the KUKs how to make paper cranes, paper hearts and flower bombs.
Big Thanks to Spicers Paper and Paper Point South Melbourne for supplying the paper for the day. Thankyou also goes to Cheryl for the animated gif!!!

Sarah & Cyndi are the design duo behind the awesome Melbourne based studio, Trial & Error.
Due to our nerdy love typography we’ve been secretly internet stalking these guys for sometime. Our stalking has paid off (like good internet stalking should) and so now not only are they designing a doily for the upcoming TT exhibition ‘A Touch of Class’ but they have both been kind enough to do interviews for us! Check out how connected these two are with their telepathic super powers!

Trialanderror’s latest paper installation was for the A4 Paper Festival, Sydney.
Newspapers touch all aspects of life, including sports, culture, arts and entertainment.
Trialanderrors’ installation, which is a collaboration with The Sydney Morning Herald, explores the ideas and values of newspapers and creates an environment where you become part of the city and explore society as we know it.
This installation highlights that newspapers are not only a reliable source for news but a destination for information about what it going on in your city. The creation embraces the quality of a newspaper product to show how it becomes the fabric of the city.
