TWS Broadcast: S02E08: John Gall. The art of unlearning design

There are few names in the collage scene (if we can speak of a scene, but that’s another story) that almost all of us agree belong to the prestigious category of a contemporary classic. John Gall is definitely one of them. 

Although his main work is related to book cover design (and he’s one of the best doing that), since the mid-2000s John has worked and experimented with collage, developing his own signature style  that has been evolving ever since. His exploration with collage has fed back into his design practice and at the same time has generated a parallel path as a visual artist and illustrator.
