Today’s poster was created for the Museum of Emigration in Gdynia and, like with our previous project for this client, we chose to use a map. The poster informs about a lecture on the history of Kashubian families in Jones Island, which gave us a good selection of motifs to choose from: the region in the USA and Kashubian ornaments (even though their history is convoluted, they’ve come to be quite representative of Kashubian culture). As we live close to Kashubian centers, we have known these graphic forms for years and we decided to play with them a little, creating our interpretation of their characteristic elements. Inscribing them into a Google map marker allowed as to combine the ornaments with the map.
