Pasted lets you quickly create and share collage art.

Pasted is a digital collage app created by James Mercer, Zeke Howard and myself.  We wanted to create an app that fostered self expression and gave people a tool to express that creativity online.  Inspired by the feel of creating a handmade collage, Pasted uses gestures to make on the fly adjustments including adding filters, backgrounds, and offers free and paid cut-outs called “Paste Packs”.  It was important that users be able to get lost in the act of creating versus fussing with tools. Outside of being invested in the app, my role was to direct the design of both the app and the brand.

Edit Masks

Pasted auto-clips images from your photo library. You can change the mask at any time to show more or hide different parts of your image. Move your image around, shrink or enlarge it, and add more images as you go.
