    Cafe Vincent, or a valuable lesson

    Why do so many nice places in Warsaw go to the dogs despite being popular? What makes the owner of a thriving culinary establishment treat his/her customers like they deserve to be punished? Nowy Świat is a touristy street, but also a convenient location if you want to meet up. We chose Vincent for a quick bite and were really disappointed with the whole experience, and here’s why. They still have great breads and patisserie, so we recommend buying stuff to go. Otherwise, you can expect: chipped, dirty plates (exchanged on my demand by a grumpy waitress who apparently didn’t think it was an occasion to apologise…), dry, cold sandwiches (I paid about 15PLN for a huge piece of bread- itself quite tasty after being warmed up- with three dry miserable pieces of chicken, three pieces of dried tomato and a few wilted leaves of UNWASHED lettuce.

    Polish Graphic Design

    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.
