Alexandra Lund is one half of creative duo Words and Pals, a project with friend and former fellow Hyper Island student Maria Fällström. Stockholm-based Alexandra is an animator and illustrator by day, whose work focuses on colorful, hyper-animate characters. Words and Pals is an Instagram project (featured on WePresent) showcasing work from both artists, from a skateboarder tripping over a heap of sand to a matryoshka doll tilting from one side to the other. Each takes it in turn to pick a word, and the other is in charge of choosing the color palette. Once they’ve agreed, they illustrate and animate the project together. It’s an unexpected way of working, which champions (and challenges) the foundations of collaboration.
