Today´s Poster Monday spot goes to Aggeliki Athanasiadi and her poster “Logic and Prejudice”. She has been working as a visual communication designer since 1999. Aggeliki studied graphic design [BA] at AKTO [Athens, Greece], in collaboration with Middlesex University of London and obtained a Master of Arts & Design degree on Branding on International Conference Organizing. She is the founder and Creative Director of Graphic Stories Cyprus, the Annual Conference on Graphic Design and Visual Communication in Cyprus, aiming at the transmission of knowledge and specialized technical training, as well as exploring the modern trends in graphic design,
The poster “Logic and Prejudice” draws its theme from the myth of the Minotaur, who lived locked in the labyrinth and whom Theseus eventually managed to kill. The illustration shows the confrontation between Theseus and the Minotaur as part of a mural or ceramic. The broken parts of the composition refer to the terrible intensity of the battle between the two. This myth symbolizes the victory of the rational being who wants to determine his destiny, overcome superstitions, overcome difficulties and live free. It is the victory of the new world over the old, of logic over prejudice, of light over darkness. She believes in the effectiveness of teamwork and personal and professional development through continuing education.
