Filmowa Stolica Lata (Summer Movie Capital) is a film festival that takes place in Warsaw every summer. Movies are played in the open air in various districts of the city. This year again we had the pleasure of creating the lead illustration for the festival and all the materials based on it. The only suggestion we got this year was to use exotic animals – and, of course, we were all for it.

We chose the tiger because the stripes can be easily turned into film reel and because it is such a beautiful animal. The illustration is inspired by old Chinese presentations of tigers but simplified and geometricized. The typography lightly references Chinese lettering.

The Experyment Science Centre celebrated its big 10th anniversary at the beginning of this month. The Centre is a place where children – and, frankly, adults – can empirically learn about science: about physics, biology, human body etc. For the celebrations of the anniversary we designed a logo of sorts for the event and various promotional materials, including banners, flyers and others.

The key visual or the whole idea for the promotional materials was based on the number 10 whose “0” digit becomes a part of illustrations connected with both science projects and party celebrations. The main symbol is simply the “10” with the “X” from Experyment’s logo in the middle.

We were also invited for a gala in the Centre where we were delighted to see that the work we did was used in a few surprising way, as you will see below. The gala was a lot of fun because not only did it include improv stand-up comedy but also all the machines in the Centre were working and the guests were roaming around them trying to create electricity or jump like a frog.

The guests who were leaving got chocolates with the logo on them: another use for it that we did not expect and were happy to find.

Last week we shared a bit of our identity for an event celebrating Andrzej Bobkowski. As promised, today comes the rest of the design, including the poster which was the base for other materials.

This time it took us two attempts to get the design right: the first poster was not dynamic enough and didn’t include enough allusions to books. Pretty much all it had was biking and various places where Bobkowski lived. But when it got scraped we kept the paper biker (though a more dynamic one) and set him on an obstacle course built of books. The books also created space to place all the additional information (and as you can see there was quite a lot of it). We added diagonal elements parallel to the books to make the composition more integrated and more dynamic, and combined it with a simple, narrow letter.

Once we had the poster we applied similar solutions to the design of the folder. At first, one side of the folder was supposed to repeat the poster but there was too much  text for that so both sides include descriptions of planned events (such as literary workshops and games for kids).
