News: "Text Message" poster exhibition in Warsaw
received from Agnieszka Ziemiszewska

We are pleased to invite you to the:

Text Message
Plein-air exhibition of 80 typographic posters

designed by students from Polish and French universities

Open-air exhibition September and October 2016
Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology PJATK
ul. Koszykowa 86, Warsaw, Poland

The main inspiration for the Text Message project was the word ‘convergence’, which is the theme of the ATypI 2016 in Warsaw conference.

‘Convergence’ can be interpreted in many ways, but in general, it means to come from different directions and meet at one point.

This meaning was the starting point for a discussion on communication in the field of graphic design, as well as the beginning of a journey into the area of communication between Poland and France, between the objective and the relative, and finally between the word and the image.

More than 100 students from three Polish and French universities took part in all stages of the project. Firstly, students of the Typography Studio at the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology (PJAIT) in Warsaw recorded short video messages, which were later shown to their French counterparts. French students from École intuit.lab in Paris and Aix-en-Provence responded to those messages in a form of a typographic poster. Next, a different group of Polish students from PJAIT in Warsaw and Maria Curie-Sklodowska University (UMCS) in Lublin analysed those artistic interactions and summarised their chosen one in a form of a graphic work.

The students created varied, often surprising interpretations of the same message and the graphic creativity proved to be diverse despite the limitations of the fonts and colours, which were set out in the beginning of the project. Text Message also allowed for consideration of various interesting issues, which altogether led to the conclusion that what is ‘between’ should always serve as a link and connect rather than divide.

Project Endorsed by the Association Typographique Internationale (ATypI)
