Collage Meets Design: Cut and Paste in Graphic Design and Art

Collage Meets Design: Cut and Paste in Graphic Design and Art by JORGE CHAMORRO

196 x 256mm

An inspiring showcase some of the best-known contemporary graphic designers using collage. Collage Meets Design presents a selection of contemporary graphic design studios, collage artists and artists from other disciplines in whose work design and collage intersect in the most diverse and witty ways. The artists included love the act of cutting with scissors or Photoshop, on paper or on screen and to combine them with the stylistic means used in graphic design. The book features projects in which different languages and techniques mix, dialogue with each other, complement each other, sometimes dilute each other and question their respective limits. Through this showcase of design projects and art pieces and through conversations with their authors, we learn about their unique approaches to the creative process, reflect on ways of understanding their work and investigate the special relationship that design and collage have today.
