“Cutout” is a leading independent graphic design magazine in Malaysia, which has been issued since 2010. Published twice a year in English, its topics cover a wide spectrum within graphic design and pop culture. It promotes the local design community by encouraging an exchange of thoughts and ideas among designers, and it also supports local talent by showcasing their work in the publication. The layout owes its distinctive look to the unique character that defines what is Malaysian: the cultural mix that is varied and colourful, yet essentially adaptive to change in the environment. The layout is characterised by illustrations and the creative use of typography.
