Zwykłe Życie Magazine
Zwykłe Życie is a Polish lifestyle magazine about simple living. They write about craftsmen – both from the older generation and the young ones who continue their tradition. I intended the layout of the magazine reflect the overall concept of simplicity. Therefore I reduced the typefaces to the two most generic ones – Times New Roman and Helvetica and used only their regular and italic version. After three number I change fonts for Korpus and Korpus Grotesk by Binnenland. I also cut down the number of font sizes to three in the whole magazine and designed the publication in an economic, handy format.

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.
