CUTOUT offers practical know-how for all levels of graphic designers. You can find inspirations and industrial advice in each issue of CUTOUT.
CUTOUT covers topics ranging from graphic design to pop culture, basically anything that’s design-related. These include feature interviews, artwork showcase and how-to articles. Its purpose is to entertain, inspire and inform readers about issues and events of importance to them.
A publication like this requires much more than journalistic writing or superb layout; it demands a great deal of passion, impulse, energy and a knack for visual communication. We strive to provide you with the best reads and design goodness in every issue.
In this issue:
The most beautiful things in life aren’t just things. They’re the people, the places, memories and pictures. They’re the smiles and laughter, feelings and moments. Some people search for moments to remember, others create their own. Sometimes we were caught smiling to ourselves when our childhood moments popped up in our minds. These moments – some happy and others not so – we cannot relive. It’s bittersweet, really. Life is all about being wild. Take risks and make mistakes! These will become moments most treasured for you.
Designers tend to get inspirations again and again from all these moments that live in the back of their heads. This issue looks into their early encounters with drawing, and how their childhood shaped their future in designing.
