Wiktor Górka – Polish Posters

I am really interested in the art of the poster, in particular the graphic design versions. Often using graphic shapes and letters in an unusal way in order to be as eye catching and unique as possible.

Wiktor Górka was a Polish graphic designer who is said to have set up the so-called Polish School of Posters. The main principles of the school were: “simplicity and clarity, the use of concise symbols and poetic metaphors, as well as diverse means of expression.”

He designed nearly 300 posters mainly for the film industry. Below is a selection of my favourite.

New Site, New Blog

My old site has all gone, disappeared into cyberspace. It’s always good to refresh your online look. Website and creative trends change almost as quickly as fashion trends so it’s best not to get left behind. Plus I have gained more skills, gained more experience and been on loads of  great courses both offline and online. Hopefully after a few weeks, the site will be something I want to show off.
