10 Things I Have Learned – Graphic Art Project.
In 2000, Stefan Sagmeister, the renowned graphic designer took a year off to work on experimental personal projects. He compiled a list of 20 things he had learned in his life so far. The collection of maxims traveled the world as an exhibition and was published as book that found its way onto many design student’s bookshelves.
One of these students was Ivorin Vrkaš, a graphic designer from Zagreb, Croatia and a fresh graduate from the Zagreb School of Design.
With the end of the year approaching and inspired by Sagmeister’s famous project, he collected his thoughts and experiences of the past year and channeled them into a set of 3d minimalist typographic posters that would use a simple and clean aesthetic to illustrate his realisations. These posters are designed as a superposition of type and simple illustrative shapes that convey the basic meaning of his maxims. The shapes are cut out of boards as overlapping layers that stretch out into 3d forms.
The posters are currently being shown as part of Ivorin’s first solo exhibition at the Boonika Gallery in Zagreb.
