About Graphic Design


I decided to become a graphic designer in 1970 after seeing an exhibition of Polish theater posters. And although I found out very quickly that the job wasn't really about designing cultural posters and book jackets, that instead it was really all about the advertising industry, that was still perfectly acceptable: All those brilliant British commercials back then? And - yes, of course one put one's services to Capitalism, but Capitalism was not the monster that it has become today. There were countries (in Western Europe especially) where the system appeared to be working out OK. And then the profession itself was highly creative. The likes of Milton Glaser and Herb Lubalin all over the place... Not a single "template" to be found. Not even a notion of that. Every thing thought out, deliberated upon as a unique problem. Every solution distinctive.

Curio


Curio is playing into my 'minimalist and yet narrative' obsession in a way that the others aren't. Here, the 'tale' is in the steampunk textures with which I clothed the basic prims - mostly cubes actually. And the avatar, of course.

She has it nailed

I am listening to her right now and - yes! For anyone who has any sort of hope of salvation for the system we are all subject to, what she says will be very hard to take. She is hardcore. And, from where I am sitting here on my sofa, she has it dead to rights.
