Collage Meets Design: Cut and Paste in Graphic Design and in Art
This book 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. It 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. Jorge Chamorro (Madrid, 1972) ) is an independent graphic designer, collage artist and teacher. After earning a B.A. in Audiovisual Communication from the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) in 1995, he worked as an art director for ten years in various studios and agencies. Since 2005, he has worked independently on projects for Café Royal Paris, for the famous dancer Yomiko Yoshioka, Greenpeace, Random House and others. He discovered collage in 2006, which has since become for him an irreplaceable art form. He lives and works in Berlin and Madrid.
