Chrissie MacDonald

UK designer Chrissie Macdonald combines set decoration, art, design, and a whole lot of paper in order to create her work for clients like New York Times Magazine and Dazed & Confused. Charming, detailed, and richly colored, Chrissie’s amazing compositions mix 3D objects with paper-doll-like paper images, resulting in a mix of dimensions that intriguingly combine reality and make believe. As a member of the UK’s super-talented collective, Peepshow, Chrissie probably has her work cut out (cut out — like with scissors — I’m funny) for her, so browse her work here, then try to imagine her work in the form of a family portrait over your fireplace. I have no idea if she does that kind of thing…I just think it would be a good way to make sure everyone’s smiling.
