Logo #42: Cut Chemist
Designed by Cut Chemist (née Lucas McFadden) and Keith Tamashiro in the year of our supposed space odyssey. Chemistry: "I came up with it as a temporary logo for the "Product Placement" tour with DJ Shadow in 2001. Flyers and posters were going into production that day and I needed an image to represent me. I scribbled it on a piece of paper and gave it to Keith Tamashiro at Soap Design to clean it up. I never thought it would be permanent..." A fairly good Cut Chemist rundown from the end of 2006 can be found here. A simple rebus (scissors cut + chemist calculates), it is what it is and it holds within the image the simple grace of becoming itself.
