The very best in contemporary collage by 50 of the world’s leading creative studios and graphic designers
‘Splicing together the influences of Pablo Picasso, Peter Blake, and Stefan Sagmeister, 'Cut That Out' is a superb new book exploring the impact of collage on graphic design’ – AIGA (the professional association for design)
'… surveys the rich landscape of contemporary collage, which has grown beyond simple cut-and-paste to encompass assemblage, photomontage and mixed-media approaches'– HUCK
Copiously illustrated throughout, and featuring a quick-fire Q&A with each of the artists, Cut That Out is a rich seam of inspiration to be mined by all students and graphic designers who wish to explore the creative possibilities of collage.
Curated by Ryan Doyle and Mark Edwards, who work together under the name of DR.ME, Cut That Out focuses on the compositions of 50 leading designers and studios from 14 different countries for whom collage has been the key to creating vibrant, effective work – among them Hort, Paul Sahre and Atelier Bingo.
Each of them uses collage techniques in spectacularly inventive and diverse ways, and materials range from the ‘found’ or rediscovered – old magazines, coloured paper, beads or images from the Internet – to those produced by the artists themselves, such as drawings, photographs or scraps from previously discarded projects.
DR.ME is a creative studio based in Manchester and founded by Ryan Doyle (DR) and Mark Edwards (ME). Specializing in print, digital and retail design, their clients include Sony, Urban Outfitters and Red Bull, and they have collaborated with designers such as James Victore and Anthony Burrill.
