Sipho Mabona is a Swiss origami master. He started making paper planes when he was just five years old but ran out of designs for the planes by the time he was 15 and turned to other inspirations.[1] Mabona was the first-ever foreigner to have his work grace the cover of the official magazine of the Japan Origami Academic Society (JOAS) Convention in 2008.[1] Mabona was commissioned by an advertising agency to create an origami stop motion video for Japanese sports brand ASICS. The video won a Grand Prize at the Eurobest, gold at the New York festival, gold at the London International Awards, silver at the Clio in Miami and two times bronze at ADC Germany.[2]
