Postreet poster

Postreet poster is an exhibition of posters collected, ripped off, cut out from the street, taken out from the poster mishmash. Expect great classics of “the Polish School of Posters”, remembering the times when posters were seducing passersby with colours and typography. Like a piece of jewelry lost somewhere in the city. We could not do without contemporary masters of comic sans posters whousing their a4 format try to break through marketing crammed pulp. There will be posters both representing the local and foreign scene. Highly engaged, handmade and serigraphy. Digital and offset, posters that entered the city walls and were noticed.

Vernissage: June 9, 6.30 – 9pm

ED-Festival opening garden party and vernissage of the exhibition “123 Polish posters you don’t want to miss”

The Association of Polish Graphic Designers has a pleasure to invite you to the European Design Festival 2019 Opening. The event will take place in the building of the Poster Museum at Wilanów. Altogether, it will consist of a ceremonial inauguration of the festival, a vernissage of the exhibition “123 Polish posters you don’t want to miss” and afterparty in a beautiful garden belonging to the museum.

All these events will be a great opportunity to meet Polish and European designers, get to know each other and make new friends. The exhibition aims to present 123 posters that have significantly influenced the development of visual communication in Poland and the world. Each of the selected works has a curator commentary that allows you to understand the context of its creation. After the vernissage, there will be a guided tour with the curator.

Karol Śliwka: Polish Design Polish Designers

The largest monographic exhibition on Karol Śliwka, an outstanding graphic designer, creator of over 400 logos that have been a part of Polish everyday life for the past sixty years, shaping the iconosphere of the public space.

Karol Śliwka was a very multifaceted designer. His work has included packaging, book and record covers, stamps, and posters. Yet logos occupy a special place in his career, such as those created for the Institute of Mother and Child, General Director of Roads and Highways, the National Library, Adamed, and School and Educational Publishers. Some of these are presently considered cult classics – it would be hard to find someone in Poland who does not recognize the characteristic logo for PKO BP Bank.

Though many of Karol Śliwka’s designs are still part of the public sphere and the consciousness of many generations, as a designer he often remains anonymous. At this exhibition we are giving the floor to Karol Śliwka: quotes from conversations with the designer guide us through the various stages of his life and work. The witty and nostalgic stories he tells give us a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a graphic designer and the various phases of his work, beginning with the People’s Republic era, moving through the transformation period, and finishing at the present day. We break down Śliwka’s most familiar logos, analyzing their various elements and recalling the stories and anecdotes behind them. We consider what makes a logo good, and what features make it recognizable. We use real objects from the designer’s studio to show the traditional craft of the graphic designer: tools, materials, and techniques that today, in our epoch of omnipresent technology, are slowly being forgotten. We wonder what inspires this graphic designer, whose work helped shape the everyday life of several generations, and if his work should be perceived in terms of craft or art. Finally, analyzing the work of an experienced designer with “principles,” we ask about the values a graphic design can hold.
