We’re back after the holidays! Sorry for keeping you waiting for so long. Anyway, the other day Mag and I went to check out the new place called MOD, which serves donuts and coffee by day and turns into a proper bistro in the evening. We’ve heard so many praises that we simply had to visit this joint, especially since it took over the space of former Bread Bar. So, there we were, ordering some starters: pate and bread with different butters. This was a great experience and left us thinking we’re in for some delicious evening: the pate was smooth and creamy, and it came with a simple yet tasty sweet onion jam. The homemade bread was great and smelled yeasty, and the seaweed and anchovies butters were quite interesting (although both extremely fishy, I could feel it in my nose).
Following the release of VeryGraphic: Polish Designers of the 20th Century – a compilation of information on contemporary graphic design by Culture.pl, we thought we would present to you a selection of Polish Graphic Designers we admire.
Wiktor Górka (1922-2004) was one of the founders of the Polish Poster School. He ended up in Mexico, where he taught drawing and poster design at prestigious Mexican art schools until the mid-90s. At the 6th International Poster Bienniale in Mexico in 2000, he received the top award for his contribution to the development of graphic arts in Mexico – Medalla a la Excelencia José Guadalupe.
