A Trendy Revamp

My first assignment in my new workplace was to revamp a 52-page mag called Trendy. The client, a shopping mall in Gdańsk called Galeria Bałtycka, asked for a new and more elegant look. So I basically changed everything leaving only the format and the logo.
For headlines I used two free fonts: Spinwerad (by Gluk) and Existence (by Yeah Noah). For leads I chose Existence and one commercial typeface: Geometric Slabserif 703. The body text is Dutch 809 – also commercial.

In the end the client was quite pleased with the result.

A Slight Flare Of Retro

"Wizjonerzy Wizerunku" can be translated as "Image Visionaries" which stands for a group of stylists that work in the fashion and media industry. They asked for something classy and modern with a slight retro flare so I designed this logo and monogram with vintage florals. I based it on a typeface called Philospher.

Instant Zombie Soup

My debut as an illustrator in Media & Marketing Polska (#13, 2010). All in all 3 illustrations for a text about the instant food market in Poland. The art director wanted something funny so I came up with this creepy folk art doll, floating in a glass jar. I remember playing with dolls like these as a kid when visiting Poland in the 80s. You could get them in kiosks at the airport or ferry terminals and they all had this empty zombie expression.
