Corn Studio’s 3D re-creation of Petrol's corporate logo uses nailing and curvaceous embroidery. As the video demonstrates, the process had clearly been a time-consuming one, well worth the effort.

Petrol’s corporate logo, which Corn Studio also designed, is a classic and elegant work that uses PF Champion Script Pro font, adorned with a dainty turquoise butterfly.

Dimos Stathis from Corn Studio designed this wall-mounted work and collaboratively handcrafted it using 2,000 nails and 700 meters of embroidery thread.

Although the nailing looks fun and straight-forward, the threading of the logo striked me as an especially interesting process. The artist curves the thread in a strategic way that it creates the look of a geometrical labyrinth that gradually solidifies into the gorgeous black layer, which makes up this intended shape.
