For this new edition of Poster Monday we have a poster entitled “Education” from Sławomir Kozioł. Who was born in Moscow and now live on a little village near Tarnów in southern Poland.
Currently Sławomir it’s a senior year student of graphics design at State Higher Vocational School in Tarnów.
“Education” poster was made for advertising graphics class. “The task was to make a social poster
about thing that bothers us. I knew right away that I want to make at least one poster using pattern on the whole composition. I was a bit tired of making posters using classic centered composition. When I returned home I started thinking about object that will be on pattern. One of my first ideas was brains which are getting cut into cubes. At the time I thought that it would be a bit of cliche, but I really liked the idea of showing time; scale of subject and a bit of a dystopian vibe using brains. Also, person watching this composition on B1 size naturally follows the
pattern from top to bottom which adds more expression to the poster.
Title and theme of the poster came up during a conversation with the lecturer. We started talking about education in Poland. We shared the opinion that there should be major changes in way that kids are educated in the Polish schools. I hate that a lot of teachers doesn’t learn how to find solution to the problem but how to memorize one (even if it’s more), which makes learning process boring and useless. During my pre-college education I felt like system wants me to be another brick in the wall, with right qualifications on paper, not necessarily on my head” tell us Sławomir.
