My Mother Named Podlachia - Editorial Book

Selected Pages
"My Mother Named Podlachia" delves into more than a simple homage to Bialystok in Podlasie. It is an exploration, utilizing contemporary editorial design as a tool to unveil new perspectives on my homeland. This project is a personal celebration of the nuanced cultural richness, historical legacy, and diverse landscapes that define Podlasie—a region often obscured by unfounded stereotypes, notably as the "bible belt" of Poland. Through subtle design choices and an experimental approach, it invites readers to rediscover Podlasie, offering a fresh and nuanced portrayal of my cherished birthplace.

Eutopia TypefaceEutopia Typeface, stemming from my university dissertation on experimental type design, challenges conventional typographic structures. It rejects pre-conceived notions of legibility, reflecting a broader theme of progressivism in modern society. The font stands out with subversive vowels – curly, serif-like glyphs that boldly contrast with sans-serif characters, infusing an avant-garde flair into the design.

PostersIn this selected poster collection, I explore what I playfully term "graphic design porn" – a space that liberates designers to indulge in the most daring visual expressions within the constraints of a poster format. These designs act as a canvas for unrestrained creativity, allowing designers to push the boundaries and experiment with a vivid and audacious visual language. Each poster is a celebration of the uninhibited freedom of artistic expression, offering a condensed yet vibrant showcase of graphic design innovation.

SerifChic TypefaceSerifChic, born in 2022, is not your ordinary serif typeface – it's a dynamic fusion of contrasting accents, seamlessly blending smooth, round edges with sharp, compelling contours. Crafted as an answer to injecting personality into typefaces, SerifChic exudes a character of short temper and impulsiveness, akin to the spirited Gemini of serif fonts.
