Cropped

Create the Cream of the Crop

Forget the ‘crop top’; cropped designs are where it’s at.

Cropped imagery is kind of like destroyed minimalism: the idea is to cut up an image, text, or hand lettering just enough to give it a cropped look, all the while making sure the image still make sense at first glance. And when you can make the reason for chopping the image symbolic or tie it into the larger piece? Even better. For this challenge, we want you to snip your design or lettering wherever you see fit (while still keeping it clear!) Slash fancy wording right in half. Is the glass half empty or half full? Crop that glass right down the middle and let the viewers decide!

Less is more; now get crop-happy!
