Cyrk Posters Exhibition

Poster created to advertise a Polish poster exhibition.

The Cyrk (Circus) poster series were the product of the Polish School of Posters. Created during the communist era of Poland, these posters funded by the Polish State Entertainment Agency allowed the the designers to play with symbolism and vibrant metaphors.

The style of this poster was greatly influenced by the works of Roman Cieślewicz.

Möth Literary Journal

Möth Science Fiction Literary Journal combines my passion for the genre and interest in layout.

My first attempt at putting this project together consisted of a thousand ideas crammed into a few pages. In reworking the design, I decided to create restrictions to challenge myself to work with. The parameters set for the project were: one colour, one font, one grid.

Features the work from Haruki Murakami, Philip K. Dick, Ian M. Connell, Samuel R. Delany, and Octavia E. Bulter.
