Places of Origin: Polish Graphic Design in Context
Places of Origin: Polish Graphic Design in Context was the exhibition organized by Culture.pl during HönnunarMars // DesignMarch in Reykjavik. It was curated by Agata Szydłowska and put Polish graphic design on the map. I designed the branding for this event and since the geographic context was behind the whole exhibition idea, I used is as an inspiration for the design of the visual identity. I chose green as the color of the branding since it is a dominating color of the physical map of Poland.
The logotype itself is inspired by the shape of a map indicator and is not a fixed sign itself, but rather a modular logotype that is influence by the shape of the project it points at.
I am a Warsaw based graphic designer. The range of my work spans from typography and branding to illustrative work and poster design, but the things I am mostly keen on are editorial and book design. All in all, everybody has his favourites. I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź, Poland and hold a degree in Communication Design. From then on I run my own studio in my hometown Warsaw. Over last few years, I was twice awarded with two Club of Advertisement Creators prizes (KTR) and Project of the Year award (STGU). Moreover, my projects were exhibited on several shows in Tokyo, New York City, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Baku, Havana.
